The Municipality of Alibunar in Serbia’s northern province of Vojvodina has signed an agreement with Belgian-based company WindVision SA/NV for funding and conducting preparatory works for the construction of two wind farms, Dnevnik newspaper’s portal reported. The project is for the construction and renewal of unclassified roads of 60 kilometres in order to transport equipment and turbines.

The document was signed by municipality chief Predrag Belić and the company’s project manager Lazar Lazendić, who said the agreement includes issue of all necessary permits. Belić said the upgrade of the secondary roads network is interpreted as a donation by the investor.

WindVision said earlier it plans to construct wind farms with a capacity of 99 MW and 75 MW near the town of Alibunar, one 220/35 kV power substation and a transmission line. The European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development said that they are considering the possibility to fund the bigger of the two projects, alongside different investors. The plant will be operated by WindVision Windfarm A, registered in Serbia and owned by WindVision Holding BV. WindVision was founded in 2002 and it operates in eight countries in Europe and Africa, according to information on its website.
