Monsson Group announced it would be taking apart the wind turbines from CEE Targusor, following a decision taken with project partners.
The park in Constanta county, having a capacity of 27 MW, has become “unfeasible in financial terms”, according to representatives, leading to this decision.
The statement says the major changes in renewable energy law in our country has led to the project no longer working within the economic parameters initially estimated and to an “undesirable premiere in Romania”, the taking apart of the first wind turbines in the country due to unfavourable economic climate.
“Monsson Group is currently analysing the decision to redirect capital investments in other EU countries and beyond.
Specifically, following the decision of the EEC Targusor, Monsson Group will remove the wind turbines, but will keep the wind farm and substation infrastructure intact, a decision about the future of this investment due to be made in a few months. The wind farm at Targusor has a total capacity of 27 MW, was installed in 2012 but was never put into operation amid unfavourable legislative framework in this field of investments.”
Monsson Group has invested over EUR 200 million in the construction and operation of wind farms and photovoltaic parks in Romania. Currently, Monsson Group has operations in 20 countries on four continents.
