Great investment project “Wind power stations”

Wind turbines On the territory of the Republic of Kalmykia, in accordance with the investment project, signed between the Government of the Republic of Kalmykia and joint stock company “Falcon Capital” continues the construction of wind farms. The purpose of this project is to construct a Czech company JSC “Falcon Capital” of wind power station with capacity of 150 MW.

Quantity of wind turbines which will be installed at wind power stations will be 126 units. At the same time it is possible to change the quantity by using more powerful wind stations from the world’s leading energy producers, such as, Vensys AG and Vestas. Wind farms will be located in the territory of the Republic of Kalmykia Priyutnensky area 3 km away village Peschany (Sandy) and 15 km from Elista.

Construction site for wind power stations was choosen not a chance. According to the results of measurements made by the German company Lahmeyer Int. GMbH, working under a contract with JSC “Falcon Capital”, the annual average wind speed at the site of the wind farm was 7.8 m/s.

Thus, the wind potential in wind farm under construction exceeds the average wind potential countries – the world leaders in wind power, such as Germany, Denmark, Spain, Portugal and USA.

Given the favorable climatic conditions, a large area of ​​plains, low workload of electrical networks in the region, the investor is ready to increase the installed capacity in the event of the success of the construction of the first 150 MW.

As a contribution to the construction of wind power plants, Kalmykia has committed to build engineering infrastructure for the power plants. This engineering infrastructure included in the activities of Federal Target Program “South of Russia (2008-2012 years)”.

In Republic of Kalmykia has delivered and installed the first two wind turbines Vensys 62 1.2 MW each, put them into service is scheduled for IV quarter of 2010. This year, another investor will supply five wind power stations (Vestas V90) 3 MW.

During the project implementation the total power of 150 MW, the wind farms will provide electricity supply to consumers of the Republic of Kalmykia with minimal impact on the environment.
