Wind energy parks, Dobrich region

In Bulgaria Encon Energy has independently developed the wind energy parks in the Dobrich region as “green field” projects. The 4 wind energy parks with a total capacity of 420 MW should be connected to the grid through 2 own substations:

Wind park Svoboda 1 consist of 35 wind turbines, 3 MW each, with a total capacity of 105 MW.

Wind park Mizia 1 consist of 35 wind turbines, 3 MW each, with a total capacity of 105 MW.

Wind park Metodievo 1 consist of 50 wind turbines, 3 MW each, with a total capacity of 150 MW.

Wind park Draganovo consist of 35 wind turbines, 3 MW each, with a total capacity of 105 MW.

  • For 420 MW all important permissions are in place and in charge:

  • 420 MW have positive environmental permissions

  • 420 MW have detailed zoning plan permissions

  • Land use is changed for electricity production

  • Preliminary grid connection contract for 500 MW is signed by NEK, confirmed by the court of arbitration and by the high court of appeal

  • Wind turbines with up to 3 MW capacity, tower height of up to 140 m, a rotor diameter of up to 112 m

  • Own transmission grid – no grid extension measures on the side of NEK required

  • Own substation Zhiten 30(33)/110/400 kV, connecting all WEPs to the transmission grid at one point

  • Extreme high wind potential – wind speed at 140 m hub height between 7.3 m/s and 7.6 m/s.
  • Land is owned by the project companies – no land security risks
Projects

Wind energy park Kavarna

In 2008, Encon Energy was involved in the project development of wind energy park Kavarna, in Nord-east Bulgaria which was partly developed from a local developer. The wind energy park consist from 25 wind turbines, 2 MW each, with a total capacity of 50 MW and substation 110/20kV.
As a main executor Encon Energy concluded a wind turbine purchase and delivery contract. Encon Energy organized the construction of the internal roads and the internal and external cable lines of the wind energy park, the construction of wind turbine's foundations and built the substation.
In 2010 Encon Energy sold the wind park Kavarna to the electricity supplier Energieversorgung Niederösterreich (EVN).
