A new wind farm will be built in the southeastern part of Romania, in Constanza by a globally known wind company Iberdrola Renovables. The wind plant, called Mihai Viteazu, will consist of 40 wind turbines of 2 MW each and will supply energy to around 1 million people, equal to the population of Romania’s capital, Bucharest. The construction of this wind plant will also lead to a further cut of the CO2 emissions by 1.25 million tones per year.

The “Mihai Viteazu” project represents the first step of the total number of farms (50 Dobrogea Complex) that will have a combined installed capacity of 1500 MW planned to be developed during 2011 and 2017. The company has already signed several agreements with the local energy operator, Transelectrica, in order to connect the planned 1500 MW farm to the national grid. Iberdrola Renovable is developing all its projects along with the local company Eolica Dobrogea SRL, owned by a Swiss engineering group NEK Umwelttechnik AG and the Romanian companies C-Tech Srl and Rokura Srl, which is responsible for the planning and obtaining construction permits while the responsibility for the construction of the wind farm will be undertaken by Iberdrola Renovables.
