ABSTRACT
The article discusses operations the 600 megawatt (MW) Fantanele-Cogealac wind park of CEZ Group in Romania. A significant increase in the total wind capacity and renewable energy generation in the country is expected from this wind park. A timeline which describes events from the acquisition of the wind park project by CEZ Group in 2008 to the last wind turbine installation in 2012 is presented. The German facility of General Electric reportedly supplied the turbine nacelles of the wind park.
