Enel Green Power has started operating the Salbatica II wind farm, with a total installed capacity of 70 MW that is located near Tulcea, in the North Dobogea area. The farm is composed of 35 wind turbines, each with an installed capacity of 2 MW.
“We keep expanding our presence in Romania at a rapid pace, after having completed our second plant just a few months ago,” stated Francesco Starace, CEO of Enel Green Power. “Among renewables, wind power is certainly the most promising technology for Romania due to the country’s wind generation potential. Enel Green Power will continue to invest in Romania and welcomes, towards this end, the recent approval by the Government of its renewables support schemes.”
The Salbatica II wind farm is expected to generate around 200 million kWh annually, enough to meet the power consumption needs of 66,000 households as well as avoiding the atmospheric emission of approximately 140,000 tons of CO2 per year.
Salbatica II joins the first two EGP wind farms of Agighiol and Salbatica I. With a total installed capacity of 174 MW, these plants will generate over 480 million kWh per year, enough to meet the needs of some 160,000 households as well as avoiding the emission of more than 200,000 tons of CO2 per year.
