New wind energy initiatives take off in Transcarpathia – The UBJ

breeze 1

Transcarpathia has become home to a promising renewable energy project called Friendly Wind Technology revealed plans to start production of wind turbines. The company expects to produce twenty wind turbines annually, each with a capacity between 4.8 and 5.5 MW, and stands out as the only national entity producing multi-megawatt wind power plants. Friendly Wind Technologies, part of the Wind Parks of Ukraine group, moved to Transcarpathia after an escalating conflict in Kramatorsk in 2022. In the current year, the company has taken on the ambitious goal of building a wind farm with a capacity of 80 MW to be built in the Zakarpattia region. I look forward to a total supply of at least 500 MW. Furthermore, the remarkable DTEK broadcast progress towards initiating the second phase of the Tyligulska wind power plant in the vicinity of the combat zone in the Mykolaiv region. Once the expansion is completed, the total capacity of the wind power plant is expected to reach 500 MW.
