We consider a one dimensional infinite chain of harmonic oscillators whose dynamics is weakly perturbed by a stochastic term conserving energy and momentum and whose evolution is governed by an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process. We prove the kinetic limit for the Wigner functions corresponding to the chain. This result generalizes the results of [7] obtained for a random momentum exchange that is of a white noise type. In contrast with [7] the scattering term in the limiting Boltzmann equation obtained in the present situation depends also on the dispersion relation.
