French group Filasa conducts in Romania projects for the production of wind energy by wind farms of over 2,000 MW, which would require an approximate investment of RON 3 bln and also plans to enter the market of photovoltaic energy with total projects of 300 MW, Mediafax notes. Last year, Filasa started work on the first wind farms in Romania, in Suceava County. The projects have a total installed power of over 500 MW, with an initially evaluated investment of EUR 780 M, said Filasa CEO Bernard Esquirol at the inauguration of work on the projects in Braila County yesterday. The EUR 3 bln investment is comparable with the cost of EUR 4 bln of the construction of the 3rd and 4th nuclear power station units at Cernavoda, with a planned total power of 1,400 MW. Wind energy production facilities of almost 1,400 MW, the equivalent of the installed power of the two operating nuclear reactors at Cernavoda, are functioning in Romania at the moment. According to Esquirol, the French company’s wind projects in Romania are a little bit behind schedule because of the change of the turbine supplier, Danish company Vestas. ‘We are talking to other turbine producers – Siemens and Alstom. (…) All wind turbines in Romania will produce at full capacity in 2017’, Esquirol added.
