After the launch of works last year on its Pecineaga wind power plant in Romania, Eurowind Energy is now building the Teiuș solar park of 60.2 MW in the Transylvania region.

Romania is undergoing a solar boom, currently overwhelmingly driven by prosumers, but the rise in the number of mature utility-scale renewable energy projects is firming as well. Both segments are fueled by subsidies, in addition to legal reforms. Eurowind Energy said it began construction works on its Teiuș solar park near the eponymous town in Alba county.

The facility in Transylvania is planned to have 60.2 MW in peak capacity and an annual output of 104 GWh. It’s worth EUR 47 million or EUR 55 million including value-added tax. The Danish company won EUR 15 million from the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP or, in Romanian, PNRR).

Eurowind Energy estimated the carbon savings at just over 37,000 tons per year. It expects to commission the Teiuș solar park in the summer. The project was launched in July 2022 and the project firm is called Teiuș.Solar.

“The launch of the Teiuș Photovoltaic Park represents an important milestone in our strategy. We are proud to contribute to Romania’s energy transition and to have begun construction of yet another renewable energy facility,” Country Manager Adrian Dobre said.

Last year the company started the construction of its 48 MW Pecineaga wind power plant in the Constanța county in the east, Romania’s wind energy hub. It bought eight SG 6.6-170 turbines from Siemens Gamesa, which will also maintain the system for 20 years.

The project is implemented through WEP Technology Investment. Eurowind Energy owns 72%. It bought the first stake, 6%, in 2019 from former majority owner Iros Brave 21, controlled by businessman Nicolae Bârsan from Sibiu. The project began in 2015.
