In the latest expansion of its wind energy activities, Axpo announced that two wind farms with a combined total of 38 turbines are in the planning stage in Romania. Overall, the development pipeline of Axpo includes wind farms with an installed capacity of 3.5 GW. Axpo continues to make a substantial contribution to the expansion of climate-friendly power production across Europe and in Switzerland, where it is the largest producer of renewable energies.

The two planned Romanian wind farms will together have 38 wind turbines and a capacity of approximately 250 MW. Construction is expected to commence at the end of 2023 in locations about 100 kilometers northeast and 200 kilometers east of Bucharest. The facilities will produce 750 GWh of electricity a year, equivalent to the consumption of around 375,000 Romanian households. Axpo will work closely with the local partner Aquarius Energy Developments to complete the project.

The expansion of wind energy in Romania will also create employment across the entire project development value chain, from land acquisition to plant commissioning and operation management.

Axpo is pursuing a niche strategy directed primarily at markets that are not yet the focus of large wind energy developers. Romania meets most key criteria in the assessment of new markets: strong demand for additional renewable capacity, high local acceptance of renewable energies, a medium-sized market, good wind conditions, and few restrictions in the planning process.

Axpo, through its subsidiary Volkswind, has developed more than 80 wind farms in Germany and France with an installed capacity of over 1,350 MW. In France, Axpo is already one of the leading companies in the development and construction of wind farms.
