Enel Green Power is ready to unleash the wind of sustainability on the Rostov. The first batch of towers and nacelles, the fundamental building blocks of Russia's Azov wind farm, has been delivered to the construction site. The first batch of towers for over a total of 26 turbines consists of three sections to be assembled on-site. The largest is 30 meters long, weighing 79 tonnes for a combined weight from three sections reaching almost 200 tonnes. The journey from the Taganrog terminal to the construction site took 12 hours. Traveling by land and sea on a month-long journey, the first nacelle and a rotor joined the towers in the construction site, as five more nacelles and eight rotors will soon be part of this impressive endeavor since the total weight of the payload reached over 720 tonnes, one nacelle weighs 68 tonnes and a rotor about 35 tonnes.

The first batch of wind blades, each 65.5 meters long, weighing 20 tonnes, reached the Azov construction site. Delivery of the main components marks the final stage in the wind farm’s construction process.

Enel Russia was awarded the Azov wind farm, along with the 201 MW Murmansk wind farm, for a total capacity of 291 MW, in the 2017 Russian government tender for the construction of 1.9 GW of wind capacity in the country. EGP is in charge of the development and construction of both projects. Enel Russia’s overall investment in the two facilities amounts to approximately 405 million euros, with the investment on the 201 MW wind farm amounting to around 273 million euros. The Azov facility is slated to go online by the end of 2020. Once fully operational, the wind farm will generate roughly 320 GWh of renewable energy each year, offsetting over 250,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
