Italian utility Enel has agreed to buy 127 MW of wind power plant in Greece, of which 84 MW is already in service and 43 MW under construction, leap-frogging the company in to third place behind Rokas and Terna as the country's top wind power producers. The plant, located largely in Thrace and Evia, were jointly owned by the industrial conglomerate Copelouzos Group, one of Greece's largest developers, and International Constructional SA of the Samaras Group. Copelouzos and Enel already co-operate as partners in Enelco, which is developing combined gas cycle plant in Greece. Enel is keen to expand its presence in Greece, where demand for electricity is growing at above the average European rates. Its ambition is to become "an integrated Greek energy company, with a generation portfolio well diversified by technology and fuel and a comprehensive presence around the country."
