NovaWind, a division of Russia’s ROSATOM for the implementation of the wind power projects, has launched the Karmalinovskaya wind power plant construction in Stavropol Krai, in Southern Russia.
The total generating capacity will reach 60 megawatts (MW) with an annual energy production of 147 gigawatts per hour (GWh). The power plant will consist of 24 wind turbines with a capacity of 2.5 MW each. The company is going to invest more than 8 billion rubles (92.2 million euros) in construction.
“We have started the construction of the Karmalinovskaya wind power plant,” announced Alexander Korchagin, CEO of NovaWind. “The WPP’s location was chosen promptly thanks to the Novoaleksandrovskiy district administration. The project makes it possible for land users to continue agricultural works and employ WPP’s infrastructure. As a power generation company, we will be able to achieve maximum WPP’s installed capacity utilisation.”
Earlier in July, the company had received the permit for the construction of the Karmalinovskaya wind farm after the positive conclusion of the examination of project documentation.
Mr Korchagin reminded that the Karmalinovskaya wind farm is already the second ongoing NovaWind project in Stavropol Krai, a region that is key for the construction of NovaWind’s farms.
