Dobrotich Wind, a subsidiary of CWP global plans to invest in an onshore wind farm to be built in Bulgaria’s northeast region of Varna.
Equipped with turbines with a planned capacity of up to 8 MW each, the wind farm to be built in the region of Varna will be capable of generating enough electricity to meet the needs of 440,000 households, Dobrotich Wind said in a press release.
As many as 50 turbines will be erected in six villages in the Valchi Dol municipality, and a further 24 will be installed in five villages in the Vetrino municipality.
Dobrotich Wind will not use EU grants, state investments or preferential power purchase prices to fund the project, the company added.
“The area was chosen for its combination of very good wind potential, low environmental risk and the availability of suitable electricity transmission infrastructure. The project will be implemented with the most recent wind generators, using the latest and most advanced technologies,” Dobrotich Wind said in the statement.
CWP Global has been working on large-scale green energy projects in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) since 2010 and currently has a renewables pipeline of 3,000 MW in Bulgaria, Serbia and Romania.
As of end-2021, Bulgaria had 701 MW of installed wind capacity, according to the Electricity System Operator (ESO). The country’s largest wind park is the 156-MW St. Nikola wind farm which is located near the northeastern town of Kavarna.
