BUCHAREST (Romania), January 18 (SeeNews) – U.S.-based General Electric said on Tuesday it will supply 14 turbines for two wind farms in Romania with a combined installed capacity of 35 megawatts (MW).
General Electric will provide 10 wind turbines with an installed capacity of 2.5 MW for the Silistea 1 project, owned by Romconstruct Top, and four turbines with the same capacity for the Mireasa 2 project, owned by Eco Power Wind, the U.S. company said in a statement.
Both projects, located near the Black Sea coast in southeastern Romania, are developed by Romanian company Monsson Alma.
Romania recently enhanced its renewable energy legislation, extending green certificates issued for renewables projects from 2015 to 2017 and increasing other financial incentives for wind energy developers, GE added.
“Through its progressive legislation, the government is creating one of Europe’s friendliest environments for renewable energy developers and is encouraging future investments in the wind sector,” Andrei Muntmark, commercial director of Monsson Invest Group, said in the statement.
Romania needs to have 24% of its energy produced from renewable resources by 2020, the statement added.
Monsson Alma (www.monsson.ro) is part of the Monsson Group, which develops, builds, operates and maintains wind and solar plants in Romania.
