Green Genius installs first wind turbine in Lithuania’s Jurbarkas wind park

The renewable energy company Green Genius has installed its first wind turbine in the Jurbarkas district, Lithuania.

A total of 11 turbines, travelling from international Klaipeda’s port, will reach the wind park in 22 nights by 113 heavyweight vehicles no later than the end of April 2024. Each of the eleven wind turbines, provided by Nordex Group, consists of 13 main parts each and will rise 240 metres above the ground. It may take up to 48 hours to transfer one turbine to the park, as the complex logistics require transport at night.

“We’ve been working on the Jurbarkas project with great care and consideration, composing one of the most significant onshore wind parks in Lithuania,” said Darius Biekša, Head of Green Genius wind and green hydrogen business. “It will contribute notably to the sustainability in the region, as wind energy is a key component to ensure a stable and efficient supply of green energy.”

The first stage of the Jurbarkas wind park with these eleven turbines and 63 megawatts (MW) will start operation in 2025. The second stage of another 17 MW is to approach the construction phase shortly. The whole Jurbarkas wind park of 80 MW will represent about 8 per cent of Lithuania’s current wind portfolio. It will supply green electricity to Lithuanian businesses, saving more than 130,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
