- Location: Strait of Sicily, 80 km off the coast of Trapani
- Total production: about 9TWh/year
Description: Conceived by Renexia and located in the Strait of Sicily, Med Wind represents the first floating offshore wind farm in the Mediterranean. It will consist of up to 190 floating wind turbines for an installed capacity of about 2.8 GW and an estimated annual production of almost 9TWh.
The plant will be built in multiple, technically independent sections. When fully operational, the annual production will be equivalent to the electricity needs of 3.4 million households, or 3% of Italy’s total electricity consumption. The reduction in CO2 emissions is estimated at 2.7 million tonnes per year, equal to 0.6% of Italy’s climate-changing emissions in 2019.
