Oco-Vant to develop 100MW wind farm in central Romania.

By bne IntelliNews November 29, 2010
Romania-registered Oco-Vant, owned by Hungarian shareholders, plans to build a 100MW wind farm in Gheorghieni, in the central Romanian country Harghita, for about EUR 150-180mn, Mediafax announced. The investors have already obtained the construction permit, Gheorghieni mayor said. It has not been specified whether they secured the connection permit from Transelectrica or the local electricity grid operator Electrica Transilvania. Most of the wind power investments in Romania are located in the southeastern region of Dobrogea, even if the wind maps indicate significant potential for other regions including the higher regions of the Carpathians. In separate news, Transelectrica announced that it had completed a RON 36mn (EUR 8.5mn) upgrade investment in the region.
