The CEZ wind farm in Fantanele, 50 km from Constanta, has started generating energy, said company representatives. Several turbines have already been connected to the national grid and others are expected to become functional in the next few months.
Just two weeks since the first MW was delivered in the national grid, the CEZ wind farm has surpassed 14 MW, more than the current total capacity of energy from wind power in Romania.
Out of the 139 turbines of the Fantanele wind farm, 114 have already been erected and another 101 are to be commissioned in the vicinity of Cogealac. The CEZ wind farm in Constanta is the largest of this kind in Europe and has a full capacity of 600 MW, according to company officials.
