Third wind farm in Croatia to celebrate the opening Installation of wpd project Orlice

Bremen, (PresseBox) - On Friday, December 11, 2009, there'll be the grand opening of the wpdowned wind farm Orlice in Croatia. At 11 a. m. sharp, the grand opening will start. Croatia's prime minister Jadranka Kosor and the new Croatian Secretary of Commerce, Duro Popijac, will be present. The eleven Enercon turbines with a capacity of 9.6 MW are situated some ten kilometres to the southeast of the city of Sivenik. The wind farm will generate 21 million kWh of CO2free power - enough to supply a town of 20,000 inhabitants with green energy.

The erection of the Orlice wind farm is another milestone in the expansion of Renewable Energies in Croatia. With the installation of the project, actually only the third wind farm in Croatia at all has been connected to the grid this year. "We welcome the installation of the wind farm which emphasises the engagement of the wpd group in Croatia and which is an important signal for the further development of wind power in this country. Being one of the leading European planning and operating company, Croatia is for us an important market and we will implement further projects as soon as possible," wpd Chairman Dr. Hartmut Broesamle declares. Since March 2007, a tariff system for the furthering of renewable energies, similar to the German EEG, provides for fixed feedin remunerations for energy generated from wind turbines.
