First commitment in Italy

Bern (ots) - The HelveticWind joint venture is acquiring a wind farm in Italy (Apulia) for the first time. The farm has a total capacity of 36 MW and is already in operation.

The 24 turbines at the Eolo wind farm together generate around 67 GWh of electricity. The partners have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

HelveticWind is a joint venture founded in March 2010 by Energie Wasser Bern (ewb) and BKW Energy Ltd. In January 2012 they were joined by EBL (Genossenschaft Elektra Baselland), EKZ Renewables AG - a subsidiary of Elektrizitätswerke des Kantons Zürich (EKZ) - and SN Erneuerbare Energie AG (SNEE). The partners' objective is to build a portfolio of wind farms with total capacity of 170 MW over the coming years. ekb and BKW each have a 29% stake in the venture, while EKZ holds slightly over 20% and EBL and SNEE have just under 11% each. HelveticWind are currently focusing their activities in Germany and Italy.

HelveticWind already operates 5 additional wind farms in Germany with a total production of 85 MW.
