Syria - Vestas to develop first wind energy project in Sana

Wind farm with generation capacity of 50 to 100 megawatts at the Al-Sukhna and Al-Hijana sites south of Damascus to be built

Vestas Wind Systems A/S, the world’s largest maker of wind turbines, will develop Syria’s first wind energy project.

Vestas, based in Copenhagen, today signed a partnership accord with Marafeq, a joint venture composed of Syria’s Cham Holding and Kuwait’s Kharafi Group that was created in 2008 to build utility projects in Syria, the agency said.

The companies will build a wind farm with generation capacity of 50 to 100 megawatts at the Al-Sukhna and Al-Hijana sites south of Damascus, it said.

Marafeq will act as developer, Vestas will provide the technology, and Kharafi Group will be responsible for engineering, procurement and construction, it said.

Syria, the largest crude oil producer in the eastern Mediterranean, is seeking alternative energy sources as crude output falls from its 1996 peak.
