Naso di Gatto

Four 2.3 MW ENERCON E82 wind turbines, with a total installed power of 9.2 MW.

Naso di Gatto was conceived to be the largest wind farm in the region of Liguria. It is situated in a wooded area crossed by the mountain paths of Alta Via dei Monti Liguri.
Just as the Cinque Stelle Wind Farm, Naso di Gatto falls within an area of ​​high environmental and naturalistic value. The site extends over the three neighbouring municipalities of Savona, Cairo Montenotte and Albisola Superiore, near to Monte San Giorgio – Mount Saint George. The landscape is typical of inland Liguria, with mixed hardwood woods and single-variety beech woods.
Part of the accessibility of the park is provided by a beautiful stretch of the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri hiking trail, which, after construction of the wind farm, was restored and is taken care of by FERA, with a view to enhance the value of the landscape and promote its accessibility.

Naso di Gatto was built in the Italian territory which first welcomed Napoleon Bonaparte, and the ideas that, thanks to him, introduced a wave of social and cultural modernization. Just as Napoleon two centuries ago, Naso di Gatto is dedicated to modernization and innovation. Funded by the two largest banks in France and Italy, and built with German technology, Naso di Gatto represents a new peaceful, innovative and ecological vision of the union of Europe.
At Naso di Gatto, as part of another educational initiative, FERA, in collaboration with the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri trail, has provided a series of eleven panels accompanying visitors along roads crossing the site area.
