EDP Renewables 2013 Annual Report

2013 Project Highlights

South BranchFacaeni

SOUTH BRANCH: CANADA / 30 MW

South Branch will represent EDPR’s first operating wind farm in Canada and is an important first step towards establishing a long-term presence in a market that is strongly committed to environmental leadership and clean energy supply.

LATERZA & CASTELLANETA: ITALY / 30 MW

Laterza (14 MW) and Castellaneta (16 MW) are part of the pipeline fully developed by EDPR. The projects were awarded long term contracts in the first auction on January 2013 and the construction was completed in less than 8 months. During the construction of the project, EDPR’s team of experts had to create an innovative type of foundation to compensate for the poor and irregular quality of the soil.

FACAENI: ROMANIA / 132 MW

Facaeni is one of the largest wind farms built in Romania. Due to a strong local presence and expertise, this project was built in record time for a project of this size and despite the challenging weather conditions.

GOLANCZ: POLAND /80 MW

Adding to the existing leadership in Poland, EDPR installed one of its largest wind farms in the area. This along with the additional 100 MW installed during the year solidified the market leading position.
