LUKERG completes 82 MW wind farm in Romania
LUKERG Renew, the joint venture between Italy’s ERG Renew and Russia’s Lukoil – Ecoenergo, has completed a wind farm in the Romanian region of Tulcea.
The farm was put online last November and is currently in testing stage. The project has an 82 MW installed capacity and is fitted with Vestas turbines, with the company planning to add another 2 MW in the coming months.
The farm will generate 200GWh of electricity yearly, when it reaches full capacity.
Following the completion of the new wind project, LUKERG Renew increased its installed capacity locally to 150MW.
Romania has over 2,200 MW of incentivized wind capacities, according to September 2013 data of grid operator Transelectrica.
