A new 34.2-megawatt wind farm is to be built in the town of Slano, around 30km northwest from the southern Dalmatian city of Dubrovnik…
The wind farm, which will boost Croatia’s supply of wind-generated power by 11% and help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 24 tons of CO2-equivalent each year, is to be financed by the International Finance Corporation (IFC). The project is valued at more than 40 million euros.
The new wind farm continues a string of them built recently in the country. In June Croatia’s largest wind farm went into operation on the hills of Velika glava, Bubrig and Crni vrh just outside of the coastal town of Šibenik. That 43.7 megawatt, 70 million euros wind farm is operated by Austrian energy developer RP Global.
