Wind Wire: Asian firm eyes new wind projects

MACEDONIA: South Korean power producer Kosep and turbine manufacturer Samsung have expressed interest in building wind farms in eastern Macedonia, in Stip, in partnership with Spanish engineering firm Invall.

Representatives of the investors said that construction could begin in the first quarter of 2011, with the first capacity becoming operational in 16-18 months. However, work cannot begin until permits are secured. These are expected by August. Invall plans to invest up to EUR720 million in three wind farms with a combined capacity of 588MW at Stip, Radovis and Konce. The first 198MW wind farm would be installed at Stip with a total of 66 3MW turbines and would cost some EUR240 million.
