GE signs 300MW Romanian grid deal

ROMANIA: A 300MW grid-connection agreement between GE and German renewables firm Prowind should pave the way for four new wind farms in northern Romania.

The deal covers links from the four planned wind farms to Romanian grid operator Transelectrica’s new substation at the town of Banca.

The four wind farms in the hills of Vaslui County are being developed by special-purpose companies with Prowind serving as grid-connection provider. GE also plans to supply a total of 120 2.5MW turbines for the four sites, with installation planned to begin in the second half of 2012.

Romania plans to produce 24% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020.
