WSB sells first Italian wind park

29 megawatt project expected to bring power to the grid in June 2015

Dresden - The Dresden based WSB Group has sold Melfi I, a wind park in Italy currently under construction. This is the first project of the Genoa based WSB subsidiary VSB energia verde S.R.L. which was founded in 2011.

Parallel to the sale of the 29 megawatt park in the southern Italian region of Basilicata, preparations for the construction work have been initiated. Work is currently underway on the access roads and crane parking areas for a total of ten wind turbines. Eight of the ten turbines operate on a 3 megawatt platform. It is the first time that this turbine type will be set by the manufacturer in Italy and the turnkey construction is scheduled for June 2015. Andreas Dorner, Managing Director of WSB Neue Energien Holding GmbH explains: \"We have developed a comprehensive package of optimal site conditions and powerful equipment which ensures a great start for the team in Italy.\"

This wind park confirms WSB’s successful entry into the Italian energy market. The next project of 18 MW will follow seamlessly in the neighbouring area where nine turbines are scheduled to go into operation by the end of the 2015.
