The Kula wind farm was inaugurated in the presence of Serbian energy minister Aleksandar Antic.
It was developed by MK Fintel Wind, a joint venture 54% controlled by Italy's Fintel Energia Group and 46% by Serbian conglomerate MK Group. MK Fintel Wind said it invested about €15 million in the project, which comprises three Vestas V117 3.3MW turbines.
MK Fintel Wind is now constructing a second wind farm in Serbia – the 6.6MW La Piccolina project in Vrsac, also located in Vojvodina province – and expects to commission this in 2016.
Serbia is a member of the European Energy Community and a candidate for joining the EU. The country has committed to renewable energy targets in an action plan. It is aiming for 500MW of wind capacity by 2020.
