GE says 600 MW Fantanele-Cogealac wind farm in Romania fully operational

BUCHAREST (Romania), December 14 (SeeNews) - General Electric (GE) said the turbines it supplied for the 600 megawatt (MW) Fantanele-Cogealac wind park in Romania, owned by Czech energy group CEZ, are now in full operation.

Fantanele-Cogealac, in southeastern Romania, is the largest onshore wind park in Europe and its 240 GE turbines can generate enough electricity to power more than 1.0 million Romanian households for a year, GE said in a statement on Thursday.

CEZ connected to the grid the last of the wind park's 2.5 MW turbines in late November.

The Czech energy group acquired the project to build the Fantanele-Cogealac wind farm from Continental Wind Partners LLC in 2008 and has invested a total of 1.1 billion euro ($1.4 billion) in its development.
