GE is to provide 10 of its 2.5 MW wind turbines and 10 years of maintenance for the Silistea 1 wind farm, which will be owned by SC Romconstruct Top SRL; and four 2.5 wind turbines and five years of maintenance for the Mireasa 2 wind farm owned by SC Eco Power Wind SRL.
Both projects are about 20 km from the Fantanele Wind Farm, which also is based on GE 2.5 MW wind turbine technology.
Romania recently enhanced its renewable energy legislation, extending green certificates issued for renewables projects from 2015 to 2017 and increasing other financial incentives for wind energy developers.
“Through its progressive legislation, the government is creating one of Europe’s friendliest environments for renewable energy developers and is encouraging future investments in the wind sector,” says Andrei Muntmark, Commercial Director of Monsson Invest Group.
The target is to have 24% of its energy produced from renewable resources by 2020.
