WindSGC-2, a NovaWind company, which intends to build a 95MW Trunovskaya Wind Farm in the Trunovsky Municipal District, Stavropol Krai, has received a construction permit for the project from the local administration.
The permit was issued following the approval of engineering design documents and site survey results for construction of a wind farm comprising 38 wind turbines of 2.5 MW each.
The approval means that the engineering design documents for the facilities are consistent with the site survey results and comply with all technical regulations, including environmental, sanitation, fire safety, and formal requirements set out in the Russian Urban Planning Code.
Stavropol Krai is a key region for NovaWind in terms of wind power projects. At present, there are four wind farms – Kochubeevskaya Wind Farm (210 MW), Karmalinovskaya Wind Farm (60 MW), Bondarevskaya Wind Farm (120 MW), and Medvezhenskaya Wind Farm (60 MW) – commissioned and operating in the region, while two more facilities – Berestovskaya Wind Farm (60 MW) and Kuzminskaya Wind Farm (160 MW) – are under construction.
NovaWind is Rosatom's wind power division consolidating efforts of the Russian nuclear corporation in advanced areas of the energy generation technology. Established in September 2017, the company accumulates Rosatom’s competencies in wind power generation, from design and construction to mechanical engineering and operation of wind farms. As at today’s date, NovaWind has commissioned 720 MW of wind power capacity. By 2027, Rosatom will put a total of about 1.7 GW of wind capacity in operation.
