After they were unloaded from barges in Apatin shipyard on the Danube in Serbia’s northwest, parts of three wind generators were transported 40 kilometres further to the construction site in the municipality of Kula, Večernje novosti newspaper’s portal said. Preparation works have been finished, according to MK-Fintel Wind a. d., the venture company which is running the project, and the country’s first turbines will be the highest in the region at 178 metres.

The equipment was driven through the town’s streets, some of which were widened for the transport, while traffic lights were taken down for the heavy trucks to pass. The company, founded in 2007 by Serbian MK Group and Italian Fintel Energia Group SpA, said the 9.9 MW facility may connect to the grid by the end of the year. The generators, produced by Vestas Wind Systems A/S from Denmark, will supply power equivalent to the consumption of 8,000 households, and the project is worth EUR 15 million, MK-Fintel said.

In July, MK-Fintel signed a term sheet with a consortium formed by international partners to finance, build and operate a wind farm of up to 128.7 MW in Vršac. The power plant project in Kula is financed by Erste bank.
