Italy’s Renexia SpA has awarded Spain’s Haizea Wind Group with a contract to manufacture ten monopiles for what will be the first offshore wind farm in the Mediterranean Sea.
Renexia has also awarded Italy-based Nautilus Srl with a contract ”to install and deploy the 30kV medium tension network as well as the scour protection for monopiles and the protection for the medium tension network” on the wind farm, a spokesperson for Toto Holding, the parent company of Renexia, told Offshore WIND.
As reported earlier, Renexia reached a final investment decision for the 30MW project in February 2019.
The Beleolico wind farm will feature ten Senvion 3.0M122 turbines installed in front of Taranto harbour on monopile foundations in water depths ranging from 3 to 18 metres.
The wind farm is expected to be completed this year, with the official commissioning scheduled for early 2020.
