Slovenian-based firms building EUR 40m wind farm in N Macedonia

Skopje – The Slovenian-based energy group Interenergo and the investment firm Trigal will be building a 30MW wind farm in North Macedonia. The EUR 40 million investment will be built in Bogdanci in the south-east of the country.

The new wind farm will produce energy sufficient to supply 18,000 households and is to be completed in about two years, North Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said this week.

Interenergo director Blaž Šterk told Balkan Green Energy News that a total of six turbines would be built and connected to the grid by 2023.

Interenergo is part of the Austrian group Kelag and is cooperating on this project with Trigal, a joint venture of Slovenian insurer Zavarovalnica Triglav and German investment management firm KGAL.

A 16-turbine wind farm already exists in Bogdanci and is currently being expanded with four new turbines to the capacity of 36.8MW.
