Iberdrola proceeds with Mihai Viteazul Dobrogea wind farm development

Iberdrola Renovables has commenced the development of the Mihai Viteazul wind farm in Constanta County, with a capacity of 80 MW, representing the first phase of the Dobrogea Complex – the most ambitious world renewable energy development, according to the company, Mediafax notes.

The wind farm – the first Iberdrola unit in Romania – will be developed with Gamesa technology, will have a total of 40 turbines of 2 MW each and will be completed by the end of the year, the Spanish energy group says. The construction works are led by Iberdrola Ingenieria Y Construccion.The Dobrogea wind complex will include up to 50 wind farms with combined capacity of 1,500 MW.

Iberdrola intends to develop the wind farms before 2017. The wind power complex will allow the company to generate enough electricity for about one million households, the equivalent of half the Bucharest population, curbing CO2 emissions by 1.25 M tons.

Iberdrola Renovables has already entered into an agreement with Transelectrica grid operator detailing the terms and conditions for the connection of the new wind farms to the national grid, including the first project phase of 600 MW. The object of the agreement is the largest volume of wind power connected to the grid in Europe.
