Danish turbine maker Vestas has decided to open a support center for regional service operation in Romania, where the company has a significant fleet of wind turbines in operation, reports Agerpres newswire.
Ditlev Engel, Vestas CEO, said the Romanian market remains “promising” and forecasts the company will reach locally an installed capacity of 1GW by 2014. At present, Romania has close to 2.1GW of incentivized wind capacities in operation.
“We decided to set up the support center based on our current position in the market and the fleet of turbines that are operational in Romania,” said Engel in an interview.
He added that any decision regarding the reduction of the renewable support scheme would hamper the firms’ future development in Romania.
Vestas signed in April a deal to supply the wind turbines for the Topolog-Dorobantu wind farm of 72MW.
