Electromontaj to build 60 MW wind farm in Ruginoasa

Alina Oprea
Electromontaj, a leader in the energy construction market, signed the contract for the design and construction of the infrastructure for the largest wind farm in Moldova's Ruginoasa commune. This is an investment of DTEK Renewables International & Moldova Eolian, after winning the tender organized by this company. The park from Ruginoasa covers an area of ​​approximately 23 ha. The wind power plant will have an installed capacity of 60 MW and once completed will deliver a considerable amount of energy to the National Energy System, approximately 150,000 MWh/year.

Electrical installation works are scheduled to be completed by September 2023.

The turbines will be supplied by Vestas. Vestas thus received an order from DTEK Renewable International & Moldova Eolian for the implementation of the wind farm in Ruginoasa. The order includes the installation of ten V162-6.2 turbines, their supply, installation, and commissioning as well as management services to optimize project performance.

Delivery of the turbines will begin in the third quarter of this year, and commissioning is scheduled for the last quarter of this year. The announced investment in this wind park is €90 million.

DTEK Renewables also has a 60 MW wind farm project underway in Glodeni, Mureș county, an investment of €60 million, which should be completed this year.

The works that are the subject of this contract are the 35 kV underground power line network necessary to collect the energy from the generators to the SEN (National Energy System) connection station, the foundations for the ten wind turbines that will be installed as part of this project, the platforms for storing the equipment, the platforms for mounting the high-tonnage cranes that will install the turbines on the site, as well as the access and internal roads of the wind farm: both the temporary ones that will allow the component elements of the turbines to be brought in, as well as the definitive roads that they will use for the operation and maintenance of the equipment throughout the lifetime of the installation.

"We are happy to start the year with a new project in the area of ​​renewable energy. It is a partnership that honors us and demonstrates once again Electromontaj's ability to support the transition to a sustainable future. Putting into operation the new wind energy production capacity in the Ruginoasa park has a special value against the background of the current energy crisis", said Ionuț Tănăsoaica, CEO of Electromontaj.

Emfor Montaj, a company from the Electromontaj group, will also participate in the development of the project, as a subcontractor.

"The Ruginoasa wind farm is an important part of the growth of our renewable energy production portfolio in Romania and we are confident that Electromontaj, one of the largest and most experienced construction companies in Romania, can contribute to the success of the project," said John Stuart, CEO of DTEK Renewables International.

Currently, Electromontaj has ongoing projects, both in the country and internationally: the 440 kV Overhead Electric Line (LEA) double circuit Gutinaș-Smârdan, the 440 kV LEA Portile de Fier – Anina – Reșita, the transition to the voltage from 220kV to 440kV of the axis Portile de Fier – Reșita – Timisoara -Sacalaz – Arad, re-conducting the 220 kV Stejaru – Fântânele – Gheorghieni LEA, the connection of the 400 kV Isaccea Varna LEA and the 400 kV Isaccea Dobrudja LEA in the 400 kV Medgidia Sud station and the LEA is being completed 400 kV Cernavodă-Stâlpu, a project in which Electromontaj designed, built and installed the highest high-voltage poles in Romania, the modernization of the LEA 380 kV Krimpen aan den Ijssel – Geertruidenberg in the Netherlands.

In 2022, projects were completed in Bulgaria, Greece, and the Netherlands, and a branch was opened in the Republic of Moldova for projects that will be carried out there. Emfor Montaj is a construction and assembly company, part of the Electromontaj group, specializing in civil engineering works of classical foundations and boreholes, soil investigations, and road and building construction.
