EETEK Hungary Kft is planning to invest Ft 13 billion to build a 45 MW wind power plant in Hárskút, the highest town in western Hungary, business daily Napi Gazdaság reported. Designed to supply 60,000 homes with electricity, the plant would consist of 30 turbines of 1.5 MW capacity each, the company said, adding that the facility would require a staff of 10-12. Over its 25 years of useful life, the Hárskút plant alone could reduce Hungary?s carbon-dioxide emission by approximately 75,000 tons, EETEK claims. The company realized Ft 10 billion worth of energy projects in the CEE region over the past 3 years.
