First Foundation of Pecineaga Wind Farm Finalized

Eurowind Energy finalized the first foundation of the 48 MW windfarm in Pecineaga, Romania. The park is scheduled to be operational in 2025.

The wind farm in Constanta County will incorporate a total of eight foundations corresponding to the eight turbines. This will be eight Siemens Gamesa SG 6.6-170 wind turbines. This type of wind turbine is currently the largest in Romania, with an individual power output of 6.6 MW, a rotor diameter of 170 meters, and a total tip height of 220 meters.

The park has an expected yearly output of approximately 176,000 MWh, enough to supply green energy for 48,000 Romanian households.

“We are proud of the progress of the Pecineaga wind farm construction, our largest wind project at the local level. By installing the largest wind turbines in Romania, Eurowind Energy strengthens its position as a pioneer in the use of advanced technology for the development of the wind industry, accelerating the transition to a more sustainable economy,” said Adrian Dobre, Country Manager Romania of Eurowind Energy.

We remind that in June 2023, Eurowind Energy started the infrastructure and facilities construction for the Pecineaga wind park. This represents the company’s biggest wind power project in Romania so far. Present on the market since 2011, the Danish developer and operator of wind projects, solar, and hybrid intends to become one of the most important companies in the renewable energy sector in our country.

“I believe the potential is almost unlimited. Romania is a very attractive market, which will grow significantly in the future, from many perspectives. There is room for renewable energy sources and more electricity is needed. At the same time, Romania has a stable framework for investors. These are key elements that make Romania an important market for us,” Adrian Dobre highlighted.
