Besides, it is our first wind farm that will include a battery system, which will allow us to deliver energy more efficiently to National energy system. Fabrizio BarderiGeneral Manager of the company.

It is important to consider that, in line with the company’s hybridization strategy, this new wind farm is considering the integration of a 34 MW-2-capacity energy storage system (BESS). It is expected that commercial operation of this storage section will begin during this year.
