10/11/2013STEAG orders 36 wind turbines for wind farm in Romania

Essen. STEAG’s largest wind energy project to date is taking shape: On Friday, representatives of STEAG and the system supplier Vestas signed a supply contract for 36 wind turbines in Essen. With the conclusion of those contracts, the Crucea North Wind Farm project with a total volume of 200 million euros is now entering the construction phase. Delivery of the turbines is planned for April 2014, and commissioning of the 108 MW wind farm is to be completed by December 2014.

“STEAG’s extensive experience in development, financing and implementation of major international projects is a decisive success factor,” as Joachim Rumstadt, Chairman of the Board of Management of STEAG GmbH, explains. “With this venture, STEAG is emphasizing its strategic alignment on the way to becoming a well positioned power generation business in the field of renewables too.”

Only last week, STEAG had announced the purchase of 18 wind turbines with a total capacity of 43.2 MW for an onshore wind farm in the rural district of Dahme-Spreewald in Brandenburg, Germany. In this way, the Essen-based energy company is coming an important step closer to its target of increasing the proportion of renewables in the energy mix to 25 percent in the coming years.

Background: Crucea North Wind Farm

The Crucea North project is located in the province of Dobrogea, around 50 km to the north of the Black Sea harbor town of Constanța. On the site, which was previously mainly used as farming land, STEAG is constructing the Crucea North wind farm with 36 wind turbines producing 3 MW each.
