Verbund initiates construction of first section of Casimcea wind park

Following an investment estimated at around EUR 300 million, Austrian company Verbund has announced that the electric station at its project in Casimcea, south-eastern Romania, is now completed

December 2011 - From the Print Edition

According to the company’s representatives, Romania delivers the ideal conditions for the development of wind parks, due to the climatic conditions, which are comparable with those along the German coast of the North Sea. The project developed by the Austrian company in Tulcea County is the largest electricity project by an Austrian firm in Romania, and the construction of the first section of the project has started after a development stage of three years.
Verbund, which has global businesses worth EUR 3.5 billion, plans to complete and prepare the wind farm for exploitation by next year. According to the project description submitted to the Romanian Ministry of Environment and Forests, Verbund has joined forces with a local developer in Tulcea to build the 200 MW wind farm. The project will consist of 77 turbines in four groups.
Tulcea is also on the map of the Portuguese company Martifer, which signed a financing agreement worth EUR 23 million with Banca Comerciala Romana (BCR) in April this year for a wind farm of 42 MW in Babadag, in the Dobrogea region. The Babadag project has 20 turbines, split into two groups, of 16 and 4 turbines respectively. Martifer intended to start a wind farm in Babadag in 2007 but disagreements with local authorities caused the project to be postponed until 2010.
