Supported byspot_img

The upcoming wind farm “Pupin” is set to be established in the Kovačica municipality, with an investment value of approximately 100 million euros. This initiative aims to feature 16 wind turbines collectively generating 94.4 megawatts of power, capable of supplying around 40,000 households.

Located in the southwestern region of Banat, amidst Kovačica, Padina, and Debeljača, the construction site for the “Pupin” wind farm was confirmed in an official statement.

Financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the signing ceremony witnessed the presence of Serbia’s Minister of Mining and Energy, Dubravka Đedović Handanović, along with Dušan Živković, the Acting General Director of EPS, Mateo Colandeli, EBRD’s Director for the Western Balkans, and Jahel Vilan, the Ambassador of Israel to Serbia.

Handanović highlighted that this project marks the second out of nine initiatives receiving incentives from the initial auctions for market premiums held the previous year.

“The auctions have been instrumental in achieving two pivotal objectives in our energy transition journey: introducing fresh capacities from renewable energy sources and ensuring sustainable energy pricing,” she asserted.

Furthermore, she underlined that all energy generated by the “Pupin” wind farm will be utilized within Serbia’s energy grid. The national plan envisages integrating a total of 1,300 new megawatts of capacity into the system through premiums within the next three years.

“We anticipate launching additional auctions this year, aiming for a combined capacity of 400 megawatts for both solar and wind farms,” she added.

Additionally, contracts were formalized between Enlight Renewable Energy and EPS for electricity procurement and balancing obligations, as well as between Enlight Renewable Energy, EBRD, and Erste Bank for financing. Another agreement was signed among Enlight Renewable Energy, EBRD, Erste Bank, and EPS for project execution.

During the construction phase, the workforce is expected to range between 50 and 200 individuals across various specialties, while post-commissioning, over ten permanent employees will be engaged.
