SKOPJE (North Macedonia), March 18 (SeeNews) - Slovenian energy group Interenergo and real estate investment firm Trigal, a joint venture between Slovenia's insurer Zavarovalnica Triglav [LJE:ZVTG] and Germany's KGAL Beteiligungsverwaltungs, will build a 30 MW wind farm worth over 40 million euro ($47.8 million) in North Macedonia's Bogdanci, the government in Skopje said.

The wind farm, which will generate energy sufficient to power about 18,000 households, is expected to be completed in two years, North Macedonia's government said in a statement on Wednesday, quoting prime minister Zoran Zaev.

In the same municipality of Bogdanci, North Macedonia's state-owned electricity company ESM is currently expanding a 36.8 MW wind park comprising 16 wind turbines in which 55 million euro have been invested, Zaev added. The 21 million euro expansion foresees the installation of four new wind turbines with a combined capacity of 13.2 MW.

Under North Macedonia's energy development strategy, the share of renewable energy in the country's gross final energy use is planned to exceed 50% by 2040.
