The wind farm was built on top of Colle della Forchetta (Forchetta Hill) at an approximate altitude of 1,100 m with wind turbine generators of 67 m in height and rotor blades of 80 m. The farm exploits wind from the nearby Forca Caruso pass. The produced energy is sent at a voltage of 20 kV along underground cable ducts, and raised to 150 kV near the Collarmele electrical substation.
