GreenIT and CI IV, a fund managed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), have signed an agreement to develop two floating offshore wind farms in Sicily and Sardinia, Italy.
Both projects are located more than 35 km from the coast and have a total capacity of approximately 750MW. The agreement refers to the development, construction and operation of a project in Sicily, off the coast of Marsala, consisting of 21 turbines with a power of around 12MW each for a total capacity of around 250MW, and a second wind farm to be developed in the sea area facing the south-western coast of Sardinia, consisting of 42 wind turbines with a power of around 12MW each for a total capacity of more than 500MW. The two projects will be developed in Sicily with the support of Lilybeo Wind Power S.r.l., and in Sardinia with the support of Nice Technology and 7 Seas Wind. Operations scheduled to start in 2026 in Sicily and 2028 in Sardinia at the end of the authorization process and following construction. GreenIT is the joint venture, owned by 51% Plenitude (Eni) and 49% by CDP Equity.
