, News Serbia Energy

German manufacturer of wind turbines Senvion announced that the company has signed a conditional contract with Elicio NV for the delivery and installation of 21 wind turbines with power output of 2 MW each for Alibunar wind farm at the Hamburg WindEnergy Fair.

According to the contract, all works on this 42 MW wind farm should be completed in fall 2018. The construction site of Alibunar wind farm is close to the site of another wind farm – Malibunar, for which Senvion has previously signed a contract with Elicio NV for the procurement of four wind turbines of the same type. For both contracts, Senvion will also take care of servicing and maintenance over a 15-year period.

Executive Vice-President for sales at Senvion Jochen Magerfleisch said that these two projects represent a major success for the company, not only that they mark a successful entry in the Serbian market, but also show flexibility of the company to delivery turbines to every location and market. He also welcomed the cooperation with Elicio NV, as the two companies have already worked together on projects in France and Belgium.

42 MW wind farm Alibunar is located near the village of the same name, some 60 kilometers north of Belgrade. 21 wind turbines will be posted on 100 meters high pillars and the produced electricity should meet annual consumption of about 27,600 households.
