ACCIONA Energy has commenced construction work on the 30MW Jelinak wind park in Croatia.
Jelinak power project will consist 20 units of 1.5MW turbine with ACCIONA Windpower technology.
The wind park, located in the region of Split-Dalmatia, is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
It will generate 81 million kWh a year, covering the electricity consumption of over 30,000 Croatian homes and replacing fossil fuels equivalent to around 48,000 barrels of oil.
The clean energy generated from Jelinak will avoid the emission of 77,841 metric tons of CO2 to the atmosphere from conventional coal-fired power stations, with a cleaning effect on the atmosphere equivalent to around four million trees.
In addition to the Jelinak wind park in Croatia, ACCIONA expects to start building a wind farm in Costa Rica this year.
