, News Serbia Energy

Company MK Fintel Wind commissioned its second wind farm in Serbia – 6.6 MW La Piccolina near Vrsac, an investment worth about 10 million euros.

This is the second wind farm in Serbia, after Kula wind farm which was put into operation late last year. La piccolina’s estimated annual production is about 20 GWh of electricity, which should be enough to cover the needs of some 5,000 households. Wind farm, which construction started in April, produced about 1.5 million kWh of electricity during trial operation.

The investor in the project is MK-Fintel Wind, the company which is also developing the project for the construction of 117 MW Kosava wind farm near Vrsac. The company is owned by Italian Fintel Energia Group (54 %) and local MK Group (46 %). Last November, it has commissioned 9.9 MW wind farm near Kula, which is the first such facility in Serbia. It has three 178 meters high wind turbines, expected annual electricity generation of 27 GWh, while the value of the investment was around 15 million euros. After the completion of Kosava wind farm, MK-Fintel Wind will operate a total of 133 MW in wind power.
