Constanta-based CEZ wind turbines start to spin

In the second half of June, Czech energy group CEZ started operating its wind park in Constanta county, generating power at 20 MW/h, eclipsing the rest of the installed wind capacity in Romania

The CEZ wind park at Fantanele-Cogealac is set to be the largest onshore wind park in Europe, with an installed capacity of 600 MW.


The Czech group is investing 1.1 billion Euro in this project totalling 240 turbines of 2.5 MW installed capacity each.


The Fantanele part of the farm (139 turbines) is to be fully operational by the end of this year, delivering 347.5 MW into the national electricity grid through the station at Tariverde. The turbines are currently being connected to the station one by one, to be tested. Power grid company Transelectrica and General Electric, the U.S firm producing the turbines, are involved in connecting the Fantanele park to the national grid.


The second part of the project, at Cogealac, has a less certain completion date. Installation of turbines there has been halted pending a court decision to solve the dispute between the company and the local town hall. Earlier this year, Cogealac City Hall suspended CEZ’s authorisation for the project, preventing the company from applying for a land-planning permit from Constanta City Council.
