Macedonia to build first wind farm

Macedonian power utility ELEM has announced that it has signed a deal with a consortium of Greek builder Terna and German engineering firm Siemens to build the Balkan country's first wind farm.

The deal includes procurement and installation of wind turbines and construction of accompanying infrastructure, such as power stations and power lines to connect the future farm to the grid, ELEM said in a statement.

The total value of the deal for the 37 MW wind plant amounts to $72.13m.

ELEM operates 1329 MW of power-generating capacity, of which 60 per cent is coal-fired and 40 per cent hydro power. The new wind farm would add 100 GWh of electricity generation per year.
