Did You Know That...
A recent study by the University of Wisconsin-Madison calculated the average energy payback of Midwestern wind farms to be between 20 and 40 times as much energy as they consume (depending on the average wind speeds at the site), while nuclear power plants and coal plants generate only about 16 and 11 times as much.
Wind turbines are also highly efficient in a larger sense: they generate electricity from a natural, renewable resource, without any hidden social or environmental costs – there is no need to mine for fuel or transport it, no global warming pollutants created, and no need to store, treat, or dispose of wastes.
Due to frequent attempts for unauthorized access and attempts of steeling into WTG on CIBUK 1 Project and for raising awareness among local population about hazards and risks of such a behaviour, WEBG conducted Open Doors Day in 3 Local Communities, Vladimirovac, Dolovo and Mramorak.
Presentation covering key safety issues was delivered to the attendees. Participants were informed about the hazards in the case of unauthorized access to the WTG facilities as well as provided information on start of commissioning of the first circuit. Participants were also informed about security surveillance that will be implemented around the wind farm.
Along with presentation delivery, discussions progressed with valuable feedback and exchanges with the event participants.
Events were led by WEBG team in charge of public relation and communication with the local community, supported by H&S Coordinators During Construction / H&S Supervisors from PMC side.
