Enel Green Power has started works at the company’s first wind park in Romania, the wind power plant “Agighiol”, located near the town of Tulcea.
The wind farm – which will include 17 wind turbines with a capacity of 2 MW each – brings the total installed capacity to 34 MW. With an annual production of about 100 million kWh, the wind power plant will be able to cover the electricity need of more than 35,000 households.
“This is the beginning of Enel Green Power’s electricity production in Romania,” said Francesco Starace, CEO of Enel Green Power. He added: “We have a substantial list of projects falling under construction and will significantly increase our presence in the country over the next two years.”
The installed wind capacity in Romania will reach 600 MW by the end of this year from 14 MW at the end of 2009, and a total of 3,600 MW by 2015.
Market specialists talk of EUR 1.5 million investment for 1 MW installed of wind energy.
