Grid boost triggers project expansion
1 February 2009
A wind farm in Serbia previously planned at 25 MW has been expanded to 100 MW following a decision by the local grid operator to expand transmission capacity. Last March, Serbian wind project development firm Loger signed documents with the Vojvodina province and Pancevo municipal authorities to build the Dolovo Wind Park near Pancevo, at just 25 MW. But after electricity network operator Elektromreza Srbije announced plans to expand grid capacity in the region, the company revised its plan to expand the plant to 100 MW. According to Loger's Branimir Matijevic, construction is expected to begin this year, pending the government's decision on prices and incentives for renewable energy. He adds that a 350 MW expansion is possible if the Serbian grid is upgraded. Loger has teamed up with Spain's Gabeira Internacional, based in Valencia, to build the new plant. Gabeira is developing wind farms in Spain, South America and Italy.
