The Čibuk 1 wind farm is the largest utility-scale commercial wind project in Serbia and the Western Balkans with a capacity of 158MW.
The project capitalises on Masdar’s international renewable industry expertise in order to support Serbia’s ongoing socio-economic development.
Covering an area of 37 square kilometres, around 50 kilometres outside Belgrade in the autonomous province of Vojvodina, Čibuk 1 consists of 57 wind turbines supplied by GE Renewable Energy, The project provides electricity to 113,000 homes and displaces more than 370,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.
Besides helping to minimise the environmental impacts of Serbia’s power sector, Čibuk 1 created as many as 400 local jobs during construction while also delivering 50 kilometres of new roads.
Serbia has pledged to produce 27 per cent of its domestic power needs from renewable energy sources by 2020, reducing the country’s dependence on coal-fired power generation in line with European Union regulations.
