MK-Fintel Wind’s 9.9 MW project in Serbia’s northwest will soon complete its test drive, started in late February. Ivan Stanisavljević, project manager, told Balkan Green Energy News the operator will start delivering power from the three Vestas wind turbines in Kula as soon as it obtains the exploitation permit.

The state is obligated to stimulate 500 MW in wind power, according to quotas for green energy until 2020. Energy minister Aleksandar Antić has been saying the power purchase agreement will be introduced soon. Still, the first wind power plant in the country will operate normally under the terms from the pre-contract, Stanisavljević added.

The venture company of Italy’s Fintel Energia Group SpA and MK Group from Serbia started the construction of the facility in February. Blades are 178 metres high and they are able to generate 27 GWh per year, equivalent to the needs of 8,000 households, the company said earlier. MK-Fintel also doesn’t expect that connecting the plant to the supply system will lead to higher electricity bills.

Meanwhile, media reports cited a statement from MK Group that works were launched at La Piccolina wind farm at Vršac, in the country’s northeast. Fifty people were reportedly hired for the works at the future facility, worth EUR 10 million and planned for a capacity of 6.6 MW.
