The small wind turbine of Porto Corsini works at full capacity

After a short period in which has been made the connection with ENEL, the small wind turbine installed on the north Foto pala eolica Diga foranea nord Porto Corsini 3breakwater of Porto Corsini, started up JuneĀ  28th, reached the full functionality. The small wind turbine realized by Tozzi Nord was installed by the Province of Ravenna, in cooperation with the Port Authority of Ravenna and thanks to Project Powered (Project of Offshore Wind Energy: Research, Experimentation and Development). The small wind turbine model TN535 provides 10 kw of power: itĀ  is expected to produce about 20,000 kwh per year, helping to offset (at least partially) with renewable and clean energy, the energy consumption of the Cruise Terminal. The installation of the system is a confirmation of the importance of the Project Powered: in addition to providing data on the strength of the wind and weather, to understand whether and where to build large offshore wind farms in the Adriatic area, the project makes possible the conditions for exploiting the wind strength even in areas, along the Adriatic coast and nearshore, particularly in ports, where the wind power is not intense, but where development costs are considerably lower than for the largest offshore wind farms. In this direction, the installation of the small wind turbine, which is purely experimental, is a first step in the direction of an important goal like the green port.
