Acciona SA set a goal to launch two wind parks in Dalmatia in five years with an investment of EUR 90 million, said Aljoša Pleić, new head of Acciona energija d. o. o., the company’s Croatian subsidiary. In a statement to Lider magazine, he announced the construction may start next year and said Acciona, also a wind turbine producer, plans to expand its business to Croatia’s neighbouring countries.
The company, headquartered in Spain, operates in over twenty countries around the world in the fields of infrastructure and renewable energy sources and employs more than 35,000 people, the report said. Acciona has been present in Croatia for longer than a decade, where in 2013 it set its Jelinak wind power plant in motion. The facility located near Split is worth EUR 45 million and has a capacity of 30 MW in twenty turbines. Until now Pleić was the country managing director for SunStroom, also a renewable energy company established in Spain.
