CEZ, fruntas pe ramura

Welcome to Fantanele

Welcome to Fantanele


Citeam si citesc in fiecare zi articole, relatari si pareri despre mega-proiectul eolian Fantanele, ba chiar mi-a scris un prieten si pe Facebook.

Cam ce gen de articol e cel mai reprezentativ:

Who's Who

Who's Who


Dupa parerea mea, avem de retinut ca, in ciuda dificultatilor, CEZ a reusit sa instaleze si sa dea in folosinta peste o suta de turbine dintr-un proiect de 600 de MW, conceput in doua faze: 139 de turbine intr-o prima faza, „Fantanele Est si Vest”, acum completa, si 101 intr-o etapa ulterioara, pe care intentineaza sa o finalizeze la anul.  E drept ca data finalizarii investitiei pentru faza intai a fost decalata cu cateva luni, dar daca ne uitam la anvergura proiectului si la obstacolele de diferite tipuri cu care s-au confruntat, aceasta intarziere pare mai curand motiv de lauda pentru cat e de redusa.

Drept semn de apreciere pentru succesul colegilor de breasla care au contribuit la acest succes, iata o mica galerie de imagini, pentru care le multumesc bunilor nostri parteneri de munca intru dezvoltarea de proiecte eoliene.

CEZ to complete construction of EUR 1.1bn wind park in 2011

Wall Street, 30 Sep 2010, online:-

The Czech energy group CEZ estimates that the construction of its 600 MW wind farm project in Dobrogea region, in Romania, will be completed in 2011. The investment in the project reaches EUR 1.10bn (USD 1.50bn). The company started construction works at Cogealac wind park, with works expected to be completed in 2011, while at Fantanele wind farm there are already 129 turbines in operation. Recently, CEZ announced that the Cogealac wind park was put ‘on hold’ due to misunderstandings in relation to the construction permits.

Iberdrola Energie Romania – news

In case you missed last week’s news about Iberdrola Energie Romania, the company with the largest annouced installed capacity in windfarms in Romania:

Romanian Energy Watchdog ANRE Allows Iberdrola Energie Romania To Supply Electricity

Romania’s energy regulatory authority ANRE granted Iberdrola Energie Romania, the local subsidiary of Spanish power utility Iberdrola, a two-year energy supply license, the regulator said.

The license came into effect on January 28 and gives the company the right to export energy, to sell it to eligible consumers and other license holders. Moreover, the license allows Iberdrola Energie Romania to trade energy on the platforms of local energy market operator OPCOM.

In 2009, Iberdrola opened an office in Romania’s capital city Bucharest and announced it would build several wind farms of 1,600 megawatts installed power.

Iberdrola is one of the companies part of the joint-venture building nuclear reactors 3 and 4 at the country’s sole nuclear power plant Cernavoda, of 720-MW power each.


Wind Energy Facts 2009 – the stats are in

The market for new wind turbines was worth $ 63 billion in 2009.

the GWEC, quoted by AP, quoted in Business Week.

The top spenders in 2009 were:
#3: The USA – 9,922MW wind energy new capacity installed in 2009, up 39% from the end of 2008 to a total of over 35,000MW. Wind generated 2% of the electricity generated in the USA in 2009. (AWEA)
#2: The European Union, together – 10,163MW (€13bn), out of which Spain has the largest share last year (2,459MW), followed by Germany; it was the best-ever year for the European wind industry in terms of new capacity added. The EU is still the world leader in the total installed wind energy capacity, amounting 74,767MW; most of it (25,777MW) is operational in Germany, our regional champion. Wind generated 9% of the electricity generated in the EU.

And the Oscar goes to…

#1: China – 12GW installed in 2009, up to 25GW total installed capacity of wind energy plants. Wind generated only 1% of the electricity consumed in China.

158GW of wind energy were operational at the end of 2009, 31% percent up from the end of 2008.

While we’re still waiting for the Romanian authorities to come up with the official data for 2009, the European Wind Energy Association announced that Romania’s contribution to the European record was only 3MW, i.e. less than 0.03% of the total, placing Romania on the 20th position among the 27 states. To conclude about our Romanian 2009 in wind energy: „we had such potential, such promise…” – much ado about nothing.
