Fintel Energia approved to connect one of the first Serbian wind farms

Fintel Energia has been approved to connect a 6.6 MW wind power farm, one of the first in Serbia.

The Serbian subsidiary of Italy-based renewable energy developer Fintel Energia, announced it has been approved to connect one of the first wind power farms in Serbia. With network operator Elektrovojvodina's approval, Fintel's Energobalkan d.o.o. is on track to complete and connect the 6.6 megawatt wind farm in northern Serbia's Vrsac. 

In addition to the 6.6 MW wind farm, Fintel is also developing a 9.9 MW project through a separate subsidiary, Vetro Park Kula. 

Construction on La Piccolina began in January and is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, according to a release from the company. The project built by Vetro Park Kula is also scheduled for completion by the end of the year. 

The Serbian government is aiming to align its energy laws with the European Union as a bid to join the organization, according to Continental Wind. The government hopes to generate 27 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2020. To meet this goal, Serbia is estimated to need about 3,000 MW of wind energy installed by 2020.
