Italian renewables group Inergia is set to complete its first wind plant. The 36 MW plant in Surbo, in the province of Lecce in Apulia, currently a hot spot of wind development, will use 2 MW turbines supplied by Vestas. Vestas remains the dominant player on the Italian market. Inergia's Roberto Vigotti says the company is aiming at having about 100 MW to 150 MW of turbines in the ground in Italy within the next two years and can do so both through acquisitions and greenfield development. Inergia, based in Ascoli Piceno in the Marches region, is controlled by local construction group Santarelli, which diversified into wind and other renewable energy activities three years ago. Outside of Italy, Inergia is aiming at 100 MW in capacity in Romania through its wind power development subsidiary Land Power.
