Čibuk 1 wind farm is a utility scale onshore wind farm in Serbia. Due for completion in 2019, the 158 megawatt (MW) capacity Čibuk 1 wind farm will be the largest utility-scale commercial wind project in Serbia and the Western Balkans.
Covering an area of 37 square kilometres, Čibuk 1 is built around 50 kilometres outside Belgrade in the Kovin community, on the territory of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (APV). The wind farm covers the total surface of 37 square kilometers in the village of Mramorak and borders with the villages of Vladimirovac, Devojacki Bunar, Dolovo and Bavaniste. The Cibuk wind farm is about one and a half kilometer far from Special Nature Reseve Deliblato Sands .
Besides helping to minimise the environmental impacts of Serbia’s power sector, Čibuk 1 is expected to deliver 50 kilometres of new local roads.
The lifetime of a wind farm is 25 years.
Comprising 57 wind turbines supplied by GE Renewable Energy, the project is expected to provide electricity to 113,000 homes on delivery and displace more than 370,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.
