International renewable energy company CWP Europe has acquired the Studina solar power project in Romania, boosting its portfolio of solar, wind, and battery projects in Southeast Europe by a further 134 MW. Construction is set to start this year, with the future solar power plant expected to go online by the end of 2024.

The Studina solar power plant will generate enough green electricity to supply some 115,000 households, helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 95,000 tons a year, CWP Europe said in a press release.
