The capacities of the Fantanele windpark have been expanded turning it into the largest onshore windpark in Europe. Last month, the group of journalists from several Serbian media visited the site.
The visit was organized in cooperation with the National Alliance for the Local Economic Development (NALED), the Serbian Media Association and the Continental Wind Serbia (CWS). In both formal and informal talks with the host, the journalists showed a special interest for the system and conditions that enabled the neighboring Romania to reach an absolute boom in this energy sector. The journalists from Serbian media expressed also a great interest for the renewable sources of energy. Their interest was not limited only to Fantanele with its full process of production of renewable and clean energy, but was expressed during talks with their host in Romania. On the site of Fantanele wind park, surrounded by the so-called giants from Dobrodje, the journalists could learn about function of wind-generators and technology that enables turning wind into power. On several objects at this biggest wind park in Europe they could follow all technical stages in the power production, from wind-generators to connection to the national grid.
The journalists from print and on-line media were interested to learn more about conditions that were essential for construction of the largest onshore wind park in Europe and how this neighboring country implemented the system of subsides required to develop this new energy sector nowadays in expansion worldwide. The representatives of CEZ Energy Group, the Romanian Wind Energy Association (RWEA) and the Continental Wind Partners Company that built Fantanele were present at the working meetings during this visit to Romania.
