Wind power plant at Lisačke Rudine near Croatian coastal city of Dubrovnik was completed. Slobodna Dalmacija newspaper’s portal said the EUR 42.5 million worth system of 12 turbines is finished on September 5. In the words of Bojan Reščec, the head of the facility and of RP Global projekti d. o. o., the technical review is being prepared. The works started in September of last year in cooperation with Adria Wind Power d. o. o. from Sesvete. Construction was the responsibility of Kamgrad d. o. o., which had participated in the Velika glava wind power project near Šibenik by the same investor.

General Electric’s turbines are 85 metres high and have blades of 51.5 metres. The contract includes 15 years of maintenance. The power plant’s capacity is 34.2 MW and planned yearly generation is 85 GWh. The location permit had been obtained in 2009 and the delay came in relation to quota to be awarded by the national transmission operator, the article said.

The International Finance Corporation provided a EUR 18.9 million loan to the local project company, which is majority owned by RP Global Holding from Austria. IFC mobilized an additional EUR 23.6 million from UniCredit Bank Austria through a syndicated loan, while the announcement from September of last year said the estimated value of the project is EUR 53 million.
