Croatia: Commission of a part of Senj wind farm by 2020-end

15. July 2020. / SEE Energy News

The construction of Senj wind farm, a project worth 230 million euros, started in November 2018.The works on the construction site of 156 MW wind farm Senj intensified and it is expected that 13 out of 39 of its wind turbines could be commissioned by the end of the year, according to local media. The remaining 26 wind turbines will be put into operation during 2021, according to plan.

In late 2017, Chinese Norinco International Cooperation has bought a 76 % stake in Croatian company Energija Projekt for 32 million euros. With this investment, the Chinese investor has taken over the rights for construction and operation of a wind farm of installed power output of 156 MW near Senj. The wind farm should consist of 39 wind turbines with 4 MW power output each. Produced electricity will be sold directly on the market, which means that this will be the first major greenfield project in wind energy that will not receive incentives from the Government. In July 2018, Norinco obtained the building permit and it was initially expected that the wind farm would be built within two years.
