On Krnovo plateau near Nikšić in central Montenegro, the installation of all 26 wind turbines is complete. According to portal Cdm.me, the exact date of commissioning is yet not known, because it depends on weather conditions. The project worth more than EUR 140 million is implemented by the consortium of Akuo Energy from France and Ivicom Consulting from Austria.

Head of Akuo Energy Emil Bakić said the launch of the wind farm is planned for the beginning of the next year, and that the unit will be able to provide electricity for 50,000 households. He pointed out the company is also interested in project Krnovo 2, new turbines at the same site.

Construction works on the 72 MW wind power plant were started last year in May. Wind turbines are positioned at an altitude of 1,500 metres, where estimated average wind speed is from 5.5 to 6.5 metres per second. Once operational, the wind farm will represent 8% of the total installed capacity and 6% of total electricity production in Montenegro.
