Axpo to add 250 MW wind energy capacity in Romania
Switzerland’s Axpo announced that two wind farms are in the planning stage in Romania. They will together have 38 wind turbines and a capacity of approximately 250 MW. Construction is expected to commence at the end of 2023 in locations about 100 km north-east and 200 km east of Bucharest. The facilities will produce 750 GWh of electricity a year – equivalent to the power consumption of around 375 000 Romanian households. Axpo will work closely with the local partner Aquarius Energy Developments to complete the project.
“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. We are working closely with our colleagues in our origination business, who have been offering tailored energy solutions for customers since 2003, and are confident that we can combine this experience with the Axpo Group’s project implementation expertise to grow the business in Romania,” commented Iulian Alexe, responsible for Axpo’s wind power business in Romania.
