July 30 (Renewables Now) - Members of the Russian Association of Wind Power Industry (RAWI) are invited to take part in a tender for the design and construction of a 68.4-MW wind project in Leningrad Oblast, northwestern Russia.

The competitive selection was launched last week by WWES Sviritsa in the form of an open request for prices without a prequalification process. The deadline for submitting bids is August 7.

According to the project’s website, the total investment in the scheme is estimated at RUB 7.59 billion (USD 121m/EUR 103m) and the Internal rate of return (IRR) would be 16.15%. While the type of turbines has not been picked yet, the selection will be made among manufacturers operating on the Russian wind market. Such a list would include names like Vestas Wind Systems (CPH:VWS) of Denmark, Ukraine-based Fuhrlander Windtechnology LLC, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) and more.
