EGPNA’s head Rafael Gonzalez said: "With the construction of Chisholm View II, EGPNA is further reinforcing its rapid growth strategy in the United States.“The new plant is part of our ongoing commitment to expand our operations in North America where we continue to reach new milestones, including a record 800 MW currently under construction.”The wind farm is expected to be operational by the end of 2016.
Enel Green Power North America (EGPNA) has begun construction on the $220M Lindahl wind project in North Dakota, USA.Upon completion, the 150MW wind farm — owned by EGPNA’s subsidiary Lindahl Wind Project — will be able to generate about 625GWh annually, the equivalent to the energy consumption needs of more than 50,000 US households. It will also eliminate about 450,000t of CO2 emissions each year.The power generated from the Lindahl wind project will be sold under a bundled, long-term power purchase agreement to Basin Electric Power Cooperative. Rafael Gonzalez, head of North America area for Enel’s Global Renewable Energies Division, said: “Lindahl underlines the strength of Enel’s growth strategy in North America.“The new wind farm also marks the group’s entrance into a new state, North Dakota, further broadening our geographical footprint in the United States.”The wind farm is scheduled to be operational in 2017.
Enel Green Power North America (EGPNA), a subsidiary of Enel, has begun construction on the $290M Aurora solar project in Minnesota. Aurora will feature 16 PV plants with a total installed capacity of 150MWdc and will be able to generate more than 210m kWh per annum, which is equivalent to the energy consumption needs of over 17,000 US households. It will also eliminate over 150,000t of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere each year. EGPNA’s CEO Rafael Gonzalez said: "The Aurora project marks a significant step forward in the growth of our solar portfolio“By maximising the distributed solar model, Aurora highlights how innovation and design are driving the future of renewables, while providing communities with access to energy that delivers both the biggest possible environmental benefits and the most economic value.”Construction work is set to create 400 jobs at its peak, and all 16 sites are expected to be operational by the end of 2016.
Enel Green Power Brasil Participações (EGPB) has begun construction on Cristalândia wind farm in Bahia, Brazil.Located in the municipalities of Brumado, Rio de Contas and Dom Basilio, the $190m project will have a total installed capacity of 90MW, and is expected to commence operations in the second half of 2017. Upon completion, the wind farm will produce over 350GWh annually, which is enough to power more than 170,000 Brazilian households. It will also reduce carbon emissions by about 118,000 tonnes.The wind farm has been awarded to EGPB, a subsidiary of Enel, through the Leilão de Fontes Alternativas (LFA) — a public renewable energy auction — in April 2015.
Enel Green Power North America (EGPNA), a subsidiary of Enel, has begun construction on the Cimarron Bend wind farm in the US, which will entail an investment of about $610m.Located in Clark County, Kansas, the wind farm will be owned by Cimarron Bend Wind Project, a subsidiary of EGPNA. When completed, Cimarron Bend will have a total installed capacity of 400MW and will be able to generate around 1.8TWh annually, which will be sufficient to cater to the annual consumption needs of more than 149,000 US households. It will also prevent the emission of around 1.3m tonnes of CO2 each year.The power and renewable energy credits from Cimarron Bend will be sold under two 200MW bundled, long-term power purchase agreements with Google and Kansas City Board of Public Utilities (BPU) respectively. The project is slated to begin operations by 2017. It is financed through the Enel Group's own resources.Enel Green Power head Francesco Venturini said: "This project marks a major milestone for Enel, as not only will Cimarron Bend be the largest asset in our portfolio, but it also opens our renewable energy to new partners and uses."As we continue to invest and grow in the US we aim to cooperate with companies and partners that share the same vision for a more sustainable future."
Enel Group subsidiary Enel Green Power Brasil Participações (EGPB) has begun construction of the Lapa solar park, which is expected to cost about $175m.The company secured the Lapa solar park project, together with Horizonte MP (103MW) and Nova Olinda (292MW), during the Leilão de Reserva public tender in August 2015.The 158MW solar park is being built on a site located at Bom Jesus da Lapa in Brazil's north-eastern state of Bahia. It will comprise two facilities – the 80MW Bom Jesus da Lapa and the 78MW Lapa.When functional, the solar park will generate close to 340GWh per year, sufficient to power more than 166,000 Brazilian households annually and prevent about 198,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide from emanating into the atmosphere.The project will be supported by 20-year supply contracts that will allow sale of specified volumes of energy generated by the plants to the Brazilian Chamber of Commercialisation of Electric Energy (Câmara de Comercialização da Energia Elétrica or CCEE).The solar park is scheduled to become operational in the second half of 2017.
A consortium of Enel Green Power (EGP), Moroccan energy firm Nareva Holding (Nareva) and Siemens Wind Power has been pre-awarded a contract to design, construct, develop, finance, operate and maintain five wind projects in Morocco.The wind projects, awarded by Moroccan utility ONEE, will have a total capacity of 850MW. Construction on the projects is estimated to entail a total investment of about €1bn, which will be mostly financed through project finance facilities.Three wind farms, including the 150MW Midelt, 100MW Tanger, and 200MW Jbel Lahdid will be built in northern Morocco. The remaining two facilities, the 300MW Tiskrad and the 100MW Boujdour, will be constructed in southern Morocco.EGP and Nareva will set up and own five special purpose vehicles holding the projects. Siemens Wind Power will offer the wind turbines, with several components manufactured locally.The wind farms are expected to be completed and become operational between 2017 and 2020. Energy produced by the facilities will be sold to ONEE under 20-year power purchase deals. EGP CEO Francesco Venturini said: “We are leveraging on our knowledge and expertise, in collaboration with our partners, to contribute to Morocco’s ambitious energy plan that has renewables at its core. “The country is an example in North Africa of reliability and transparency in supporting the development of renewable technologies.”
