Pontinvrea

La Rocca

 

Four ENERCON E-53 800kW wind turbines, with a total installed power of 3,2 MW.

La Rocca (The Fortress) came into operation in 2008 and takes its name from the Rocca della Ghingherina, a rocky summit on the Ligurian-Po watershed which is located in the area of ​​the wind farm.

The plant area is mostly used as grassland and is surrounded by a beech forest. Four educational panels accompany visitors on a guided tour dedicated to the wind farm and environmental topics.

In conjunction with the construction of the wind farm, FERA intervened in the area with works aimed at mitigating potential impacts and reducing electromagnetic fields: it built an electrical substation and an underground cable duct, eliminating 300 meters of overhead lines and dismantling three electrical pylons.

In 2011, FERA also promoted and supported the construction of a climbing site on the Rocca della Ghingherina, with the installation of eight climbing lines carried out in collaboration with the Mountaineering Unit of the Civil Protection of the National Alpine Association.

On 31 August 2013, the La Rocca wind turbines supplied electricity for the first edition of the “Musica nel Vento” Festival, organized as part of the Days and Nights of the Farmer initiative with the patronage of the Municipality of Pontinvrea (here the press release).
