The 57.5MW Novoazovskiy project, owned by Wind Parks of Ukraine, is located in Donetsk, south-east Ukraine, an area controlled by pro-Russian rebels following the unrest in 2014/15.

In 2015 the Ukranian government imposed a ban on the purchase of energy produced by the Novoazovskiy wind farm, due to its location in the territory. The ban has now been lifted following a number of court victories for the developer.

The Novoazovskiy wind farm comprises 23 Furhländer 2.5MW turbines and was commissioned in two phases in 2011 and 2012, according to Windpower Intelligence, the research and data division of Windpower Monthly.

In 2013, the developer received a €48.8 million loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and development and the Clean Technology Fund to help operate the project.
