Copisa wins the civil works of a large wind farm in Chirnogeni

The construction company Copisa has won the civil works project for the Chirnogeni wind farm. These works, which will involve the installation of 32 wind turbines of 2.5 MW each, will be directed by Iberdrola Ingeniería y Construcción through an EPC type contract, a press release informs. The award to Copisa includes the following work units: construction of 25 km of roads for access to the wind turbines, the excavation of 25 km of trenches and laying electric cables in them, and the foundations for the 24 wind turbine units. The whole assembly amounts to 8 million euro and is expected to be finished in a period of five months. The final beneficiary of the project is the company EP Wind Project Six S.A., owned by three investors. The company Marguerite Fund, formed by a group of European financial institutions and specialising in matters of energy, climate change and infrastructure projects, has 50 pc and is the majority investor. EP Global Energy, a private development company with headquarters in Cyprus, which started the wind farm project in 2007, has a 20 pc holding and EnerCap Power Fund, with headquarters in Prague, completes the holdings in the company with the remaining 30 pc. This is Copisa’s third wind farm in Romania. The two earlier projects, completed for Iberdrola Renovables, were phases I and II of the Mihai Viteazu Wind Farm, in the Drobogea region.
