The Vojvodinian secretary for energy, construction and transport, Ognjen Bjelic, said that 700 million euro has been invested in the construction of seven 398-megawatt wind farms in Vojvodina over the past five years.
Bjelic visited the Kovacica wind farm, where the investor, Enlight K2 Wind, was granted permission to build the Pupin wind farm within the existing complex.
According to the permit issued by the Provincial Secretariat for Energy, Construction and Traffic, 16 modern wind turbines with a total capacity of 95.5 megawatts are to be built inside the new power plant. The new facility, according to the plan, should be completed in the second half of 2023.
Bjelic also said that the adoption of the new law on renewable energy sources is a clear signal that investors in renewable energy sources are welcome and shows the direction in which Serbia’s energy policy is moving.
The director of the New Energy Solutions Company, Milos Colic, said that the company is focusing on Serbia’s green future, adding that by 2040, 40% of the total energy will have come from renewable sources. “As a company, we see our future here,” Colic said.
The Kovacica wind farm, with a capacity of 104.5 megawatts, is the second-largest in Serbia. It consists of 38 turbines, produces electricity for 68,000 households and contributes to the reduction of carbon dioxide by 250,000 tonnes per year. A total of 189 million euro was invested in the construction of this wind farm.
