Enel Green Power Hellas S.A. (EGPH), a subsidiary of Italian energy company Enel, has connected to the grid its new, 154 MW Kafireas wind farm complex, which is the largest of its kind in the country.

According to the company’s website, located in the municipality of Karystos (Evia), Kafireas involved an overall investment of around EUR 300 million.

The Kafireas facility is a cluster of seven wind farms for a total of 67 turbines

The Kafireas facility, which is a cluster of seven wind farms for a total of 67 turbines, will be capable of generating approximately 480 GWh per year, which is set to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by 315,000 tonnes annually. The facility is supported by a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Hellenic Electricity Market Operator (DAPEEP), Enel said.

The energy from Kafireas will be delivered to the national grid on mainland Greece

The wind project includes the interconnection with mainland Greece through a 150 kV high-voltage overhead, underground and submarine cable as well as two new 150 kV high-voltage substations in Evia. The energy from Kafireas will be delivered to the national grid on mainland Greece.

With Kafireas, EGPH will reach over 460 MW of installed capacity

EGPH already operates two wind farms in the municipality of Karystos, the 7.5 MW Iliolousti I and the 9 MW Iliolousti II. EGPH is a leading owner and operator of renewable plants in Greece, with Kafireas, the company will reach over 460 MW of installed capacity, from wind (approximately 354 MW), solar (around 90 MW) and hydro (about 20 MW).

Antonio Cammisecra, Enel Green Power CEO, said that the company has reached a significant milestone by connecting to the grid the largest wind project in Greece, one of the first countries where we started our renewable journey more than a decade ago.
