    Siemens Gamesa enters Serbia with the installation of a 66 MW wind farm

    May 20, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa is coming to Serbia with the installation of a 66 MW wind farm. The Kostolac wind farm, located in the east of the country, will be equipped with 20 SG 3.3-132 wind turbines with an output of up to 3.65 MW.

      When the facility is completed in 2024, these turbines will be the most powerful in the country. Siemens Gamesa will also be responsible for the turnkey construction of the wind farm, including civil and electrical works. In line with the search for a sustainable energy model, the wind turbines will be located on land that previously housed coal mines.

      This project also marks the entry of the state-owned energy company EPS into the wind energy sector and will enable it to expand its energy sources beyond coal, thermal and hydroelectric power.

      Kostolac is the first Serbian wind power project to be financed by the German development bank KfW, and thus becomes the fourth KfW-financed wind farm equipped with Siemens Gamesa wind turbines in the Balkan region.

      Wind power in Serbia

      Serbia currently has around 400 MW of installed wind power capacity. The wind energy association WindEurope expects this figure to increase considerably in the coming years, as the government plans to hold further auctions. According to its calculations, each wind turbine installed today in Europe generates around EUR 7 million in economic benefits, which would have a major impact on Serbia and help develop the local supply chain.
