In Seman region, near the city of Fier in south western part of Albania local company Natural Energy System has applied for a construction permit for wind farm, Albanian Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy announced.

According to the application, the new wind farm will have installed capacity of up to 3 MW, but no further details regarding the project’s cost or construction timetable have been revealed.

According to regulation, the construction of wind farms with installed capacity of up to 3 MW is not subject to concession procedures and such facilities could be built just with a permit issued by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy. The Ministry received similar request in July, by local company Spark Wind, which also plans to build a wind farm of up to 3 MW in south western Albania.
