Enel Green Power Breaks Ground on its First Wind Farm in Uruguay

ROME – Italy’s Enel Green Power said Monday it started building its first wind farm in Uruguay, a project that will cost 72.9 million euros ($98 million).

The Melowind facility will have 50 MW of installed capacity and is in Cerro Largo, located about 320 kilometers (198 miles) from Montevideo, the South American country’s capital.

The wind farm will be able to produce 200 million kWh of electricity annually, preventing the emission of 62,000 tons of CO2.

Melowind will have a load factor of more than 47 percent, the equivalent of over 4,100 hours of production per year, Enel Green Power said.

The electricity produced at the wind farm will be sold to state-owned UTE, a utility company that handles the transmission, distribution and sale of electricity in Uruguay, under a 20-year agreement, Enel Green Power said.

Enel Green Power’s strategy is to focus on “technological and geographic diversification,” CEO Francesco Venturini said.
