Dutch outfit EWT has installed its first wind turbine in Italy for Gaia Renewable Energy.

The DW61 900kW machine has been installed at Montefalcone di Val Fortore.

EWT chief executive Mark Jones said: “EWT is a natural fit for the Italian market, both today and in the future, and so our first contracts and first installation represent important milestones. We are very pleased to take that step with Gaia.”

Gaia owner Francesco Nardi said: “EWT was capable of bringing in the technology, flexibility, critical output levels and reliability that was needed for this project and due to this short delivery time EWT was the ideal fit.”
