Croatian state-owned energy supplier Hrvatska Elektroprivreda (HEP) has put into operation Korlat wind farm worth HRK 500 million (USD 80.2 million), according to a report by SeeNews.
The wind farm near the town of Benkovac, Zadar County, has 18 wind turbines of 3.6-MW (megawatt) each, which were delivered, installed and put into operation by Germany's Nordex, HEP said in a statement.
Local companies Ing-Grad and Fractal carried out the works on the construction of the infrastructure and the connection to the grid. With an expected annual production of 170 GWh (gigawatt-hour), the wind farm will produce enough electricity to power over 50,000 households, Croatia's Prime Minister Andrej Plenković announced as it inaugurated the system. HEP also said it plans to start next year the construction of a 75 MW solar power plant estimated to cost over HRK 500 million next to the Korlat wind farm.
