Italian Transmission System Operator (TSO), Terna, has granted six of Hexicon’s seven wind power sites connection to the national grid. Hexicon, operating in Italy through its joint venture AvenHexicon, now has a portfolio of seven development sites for floating wind along the coasts of Sardinia, Sicily and Puglia.
Grid connections were applied for in 2022 and Terna has now issued the technical solution to connect six of the seven locations to the national grid - a total combined capacity of 7,100 MW. The interconnection permit, also called STMG, is a preliminary agreement from Terna to provide interconnection capacity. It provides a commitment from the TSO to make the necessary capacity available to be connected to the grid and is a mandatory step to receive the main authorization (the so called “Autorizzazione Unica” or “AU”) to build and operate an offshore wind farm. The grid connection solutions are issued for six offshore wind farms under development off the coasts of Sardinia, Sicily and the mainland, in Puglia. The grid connection application for the remaining wind site is currently being processed and is expected to come through shortly.
