Director of Engineering, Construction & Operations at Belgian company Elicio NV, which is developing two wind farms in Serbia, said that the laying of foundations for 21 wind turbines of the Alibunar wind farm has started and it should be completed by the end of the month.
According to him, the installation of wind turbines should start in February and should be completed by the end of May, while the 42 MW wind farm should be put into trial operation in September this year.
In June 2017, German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion announced that it has signed a contract for the supply and installation of 21 turbines at the Alibunar wind farm with Elicio NV. The statement from Senvion said that the installation of 21 MM100 model turbines, with combined output of 42 MW, will take place in the first half of 2018.
Last October, the company put into operation wind farm Malibunar, which is the third operational wind farm in Serbia. It has four wind turbines with combined installed capacity of 8 MW. The farm’s estimated annual electricity production is over about 25 GWh, while the cost of the project is 13.8 million euros. In September, Unicredit Bank Serbia and Elicio NV have signed a long-term financing agreement worth 9.8 million euros for the development, construction and operation of Malibunar wind farm.
