An 11.2 MW wind farm near Sibenik seaport has been inaugurated by Croatia's economy minister, Branko Vukelic. Developed by EnerSys Dubrovnik, the Croatian subsidiary of German wind firm WPD, the Trtar-Krtolin project is the country's second wind farm and comprises 14 Enercon E48 wind turbines. It will produce 30 GWh of electricity a year, enough to supply over 10,000 households in the Sibenik area. All of the electricity generated will be sold to Croatian power utility Hrvatska Elektroprivreda (HEP) under a 15 year contract. EnerSys subsidiary Vjetroelektrana Trtar-Krtolin (VTK) will operate the plant. VTK has an agreement with the city of Sibenik to contributing 0.5% of the facility's annual revenues to community projects. Trtar-Krtolin brings Croatia's total wind capacity to 16.8 MW from 21 turbines. Croatia has set a legislative goal for 900 GWh of renewables electricity by 2010, excluding large hydro. A national energy program, ENWIND, came into force in September and offers a fixed power purchase price of EUR 0.057/kWh for wind projects up to 5 MW rated capacity. The law also exempts wind plant from the licensing fees that other generators must pay to local authorities.
