The municipality of Alibunar launched a public inspection of the Detailed Regulation Plan for the Banat 5 renewable energy complex. The plan envisages the construction of a wind farm and a solar power plant.
The maximum installed capacity of the wind farm Banat 5 will be around 120 MW, while a further analysis will determine the capacity of the solar power plant, according to the plan. The investor is WV International Ventures, a subsidiary of the Belgian-Dutch company WindVision.
Depending on the wind potentials, the construction of several independent wind turbine fields, with matching connecting medium-voltage cables and substations is planned. According to preliminary analyses, the construction of 20 to 30 wind turbines with individual output of 4-8 MW is planned.
In 2020, WindVision and the municipality of Alibunar signed an agreement on the right of easement for the use and installation of electricity transmission cables for the new wind farm, Banat 1. The wind farm complex will include two wind farms: Banat 1 near Vladimirovac and Banat 2 near Nikolinci. 44 wind turbines will be built in Vladimirovac with a total installed capacity of 186 MW, while in Nikolinci, there will be 25 turbines with a total installed capacity of 140 MW.
In 2022, WindVision said that it is planning to build a 150 MW wind farm Banat 4 near Pancevo.
