Ending 10 years of standstill in Romania

After the end of the state subsidy boom in 2014, the wind sector in Romania was in the doldrums. Now Siemens Gamesa and Eurowind Energy are jointly building the country's first subsidy-free project.

Between 2010 and 2014, Romania experienced a boom in the wind industry, with nearly 3 GW of energy installed, thanks to government subsidies for the sector. With the end of these subsidies, development came to an almost complete standstill. Now, however, a breath of fresh air is coming into the market - with subsidy-free wind projects.

Siemens Gamesa will deliver eight SG 6.6-170 turbines for the 48 MW Pecineaga wind project and install them in the second half of 2024. The wind turbines, which are among the most powerful onshore turbines, will be located on 135-metre-high towers and will be installed around 50 km from Constanta. Siemens Gamesa and Eurowind Energy have also signed a 20-year service agreement covering the maintenance of the turbines during this period.  

“This is the second project we have signed with Eurowind Energy this year, following a contract to supply the same turbines for the Lervik project in Sweden. So we are pleased to build on this partnership, and especially back into the Romanian market where we foresee further opportunities to develop what can be once more a burgeoning wind industry,” said Clark MacFarlane, CEO of Siemens Gamesa’s operations in Northern Europe and the Middle East. 

For its part, Morten Gaarde, Head of Engineering, Procurement and Construction at Eurowind, said: “We are very pleased that we are able to build on a great relationship with Siemens Gamesa. We are also excited about taking the next steps and begin actual construction in Romania after years of development. Our Romanian team have done a great job on the Pecineaga project and we have a solid pipeline of coming projects under development in Romania, which we consider an attractive growth market in Europe.”
