Timeline

Milestones

Construction of the Azov Wind Power Plant is a contribution to the sustainable development of Russian economy. Creating shared value approach applied during construction and maintenance phases integrates social and environmental factors into business processes, helping to increase the sustainability of the territories of our presence. 

Tender award

Enel Russia has been awarded the Azov wind project for a capacity of 90 MW within the framework of the 2017 Russian government tender for the construction of wind generating facilities in the country.    

The Azov wind power plant was granted the special regional status and was included in the Governor’s special projects list

Enel Russia and Rostov Regional Government signed the collaboration agreement in the renewables field. The project has been included in the regional list of “100 Governor’s priority projects”.

 

Financing

Financing agreement for the amount of 9,5 bln RUB was signed with Eurasian Development Bank. 

Ready to build status

Positive conclusion for the project design documents and construction permits obtained for wind power plant and T-line.

 

Start of construction 

On May 23, 2019, a 90 MW Azov wind power plant ground breaking ceremony was held with the participation of the Governor of the Rostov region Vasiliy Golubev, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Italian Republic to the Russian Federation Pasquale Terracciano, regional authorities.

First equipment delivery – anchor cages 

Anchor cages for 26 WTGs delivered on site.

First concrete pylon installation 

First concrete pylon out of 245 foreseen for the overhead 110kV T-line installed.

MV 35 kV cable pulling  

MV cable pulling on Wind power plant started.

Concreting the first foundation

The first WTG foundation out of 26 in total casted.

Installation of first anchor pylon

First anchor pylon out of 45 in total for T-line 110kV installed.

Cable installation

Cable installation on T-line 110 kV started.

Main transformer installation

Installation of the Main transformer for the wind farm Substation started.

The first sets of towers and hubs delivery

The first set of towers comprising of three assembly sections arrived on site. The biggest is 30 meters long and weights 79 tonnes. The total weight of three sections is nearly 200 tonnes. In total there will be 26 such sets – according to the number of wind turbines. Apart from towers, the first hubs were delivered to the construction area.

 

The first nacelles delivery

This cargo, weighing more than 720 tons in total (one nacelle weighs 68 tons, and a hub - 35 tons), had a difficult journey both by land and by sea from the manufacturer in the Leningrad Region to the place of construction of the wind farm. The delivery took about a month. For the ground transportation, some special upgrade of the route to the construction site were implemented to ensure unhindered transportation with special extra-long vehicles. In addition, access roads to the construction site with load-bearing capacity for the transportation of heavy cargo were built.

 

The first set of blades delivery

The first set consisting of 3 blades each 65.5 meters long and 20 tons weight arrived at construction site.

Pre assembly of main wind turbine components

The erection process has begun involving the pre assembly of first two segments of the wind turbine towers to be followed by the main assembly process.
