, SEE Energy News

Wind turbines manufacturer Siemens Gamesa said that it has signed an agreement with Danish company Eurowind Energy to supply turbines for its 48 MW wind project in Romania. This would be the first order from Romania since the initial RES boom ended in 2014.

The statement from the company said that it will supply eight SG 6.6-170 turbines to the Pecineaga wind project located some 50 kilometers from Constanta. The installation of the turbines is expected to be carried out in the second half of 2024. The two companies have also signed a 20- year service agreement covering the maintenance of the turbines over this period.

Romania witnessed a boom in its wind industry from 2010-2014 thanks to government subsidies for the sector, during which time close to 3GW of energy was installed. Despite scarce activity in the market in the following years the country has remained of interest for developers which now see opportunities for the sector to gain steam again working on a subsidy free basis.
