Swiss renewable energy producer and trader Axpo plans to build two wind farms in Romania, with a combined installed capacity of about 250 MW. The project will be carried out in cooperation with Axpo’s local partner, Aquarius Energy Developments.

The construction of the two wind farms, which will together have 38 turbines, is expected to begin at the end of 2023, in locations about 100 km north-east and 200 km east of the Romanian capital Bucharest.

The two wind farms will produce 750 GWh of electricity a year

The projected electricity output is 750 GWh a year, enough to meet the needs of about 375,000 Romanian households, Axpo said in a press release.

“Like the main markets of Germany and France in which we have been successful for many years, Romania holds enormous potential for the development of wind farms,” said Iulian Alexe, who is responsible for Axpo’s wind power business in Romania.

Axpo has developed 1.35 GW of wind farms in Germany and France

In Germany and France, Axpo’s subsidiary Volkswind has already developed more than 80 wind farms, with a total installed capacity of over 1.35 GW.

Axpo, Switzerland’s largest renewable energy producer, employs more than 5,000 people in over 30 countries in Europe, North America, and Asia. Its development pipeline includes wind farms with a total installed capacity of 3.5 GW, according to the press release.

Axpo’s portfolio includes solar, hydropower, biomass, and nuclear energy, and the company also markets solar and wind energy across Europe on behalf of its clients, the statement adds.
