Spanish utility Endesa adds 200 MW to its Italian wind portfolio

Spanish utility Endesa has acquired a 14 MW wind farm near Naples in the region of Campania from Spanish turbine manufacturer and wind power developer Gamesa. It is the first deal implementing a 2005 framework agreement between the companies that will see Endesa add 200 MW to its Italian capacity through 2007. Endesa is investing EUR 16.6 million in the seven-turbine Lardino plant, south of Naples in the town of Durazzano. Later this year, Gamesa will deliver its 42 MW Montecute wind farm in the central area of Abruzzo to the utility as part of the framework accord. Endesa is targeting a total capacity of around 400 MW in Italy by 2009. It currently operates a 20 MW wind plant in Sardinia, acquired from Gamesa prior to the accord, and it owns 51% of Italian wind energy group MF Power, which has a total installed capacity of 22.5 MW from two plants in Vallesaccarda and Campania.
