Wind energy park, Belarus

In 2011 Encon Energy began the development of wind energy park in Republic of Belarus, Dzerginski region as “green field” project.
The wind park consisted of 80 wind turbines, 2 MW each, with a total capacity of 160 MW. It should be connected to the grid through an own substation.
Encon Energy built a wind measurement mast in order to measure wind speed.
The activities for securing of land plots for wind turbines, detailed zoning planning for the turbines, substation, cable lines and internal roads, environmental impact assessment were successful started.
Due to objective technical and economic circumstances beyond the control of Encon Energy the project activities were discontinued in 2013.

Projects

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
