Russia’s state atomic energy corporation ROSATOM is planning to set up 600 MW of wind power capacity in the South Russia region. To this end, JSC VetroOGK, a subsidiary of ROSATOM, will begin the construction of a 150 MW wind park in Shovgenovsky and Giaginsky districts of the Republic of Adygea. The wind farm will consist of a 220 kV substation and a 220 kV transmission line that will connect the project site to the existing Armavir-Tsentralnaya transmission network. The equipment for the project will be provided by Dutch wind turbine maker Lagerway. The project is expected to be commissioned by January 2019. Once complete, it will help reduce the power deficit of the Republic of Adygea by around 20 per cent.
