Italy's Enel, through its subsidiary Enel North America, has entered into an agreement with Windkraft Nord USA to buy all of the interest and rights to the 63MW Snyder Wind Project, which is to be developed in Scurry County, Texas.

Using Vestas’ latest technology, the V90 3.0MW wind turbine generator, the new Snyder wind farm will provide Texas with clean wind power in 2007. Snyder represents the first time that this turbine model will be used at a project of this size in the US.

Windkraft Nord USA will remain involved in the project as the construction manager.

Enel North America marks another step forward in wind power, fully in line with our strategic target to grow in renewable worldwide said Fulvio Conti, Enel CEO. This deal, coupled with the partnership we signed in September with TradeWind Energy to develop over 1,000MW of wind capacity, further confirms Enel’s strong commitment to develop the wind market in the US.
