Swiss power firm Alpiq will invest EUR 36mn in the expansion of its wind park in Bulgaria by a further 22.5MW, the company said in a statement on its website. The company put into operation its EUR 80mn Vetrocom wind park, consisting of 20 wind turbines with a combined installed capacity of 50MW and an annual output capacity of 144GWh in November. The wind farm, located near Kazanlak in central Bulgaria, was connected to the grid and started supplying green electricity. The board of directors approved the capacity expansion on the favourable wind conditions and the existing infrastructure. The construction works will start in spring 2011, while the new facility is expected to be put into operation in Q4 2011.
