WF Korlat is going to be the first wind farm in HEP's portfolio, constructed at the location carrying the same name, eight kilometers north-west of the town of Benkovac.
Connection capacity of the wind farm is 58 MW, whereas expected annual generation amounts to around 170 GWh, which makes up 1 percent of annual electricity consumption in Croatia. Generated electricity will be sufficient for the supply of more than 50,000 households. The total value of the investment is more than HRK 500 million.
The wind farm will have 18 wind turbines, each with installed capacity of 3.6 MW. Wind turbine pillars are 114 meters high and the diameter of the rotor is 131 meters. Wind turbines will be delivered, constructed and put into operation by the German company Nordex. Croatian companies, Ing-Grad and Fractal, will construct the infrastructure and grid connection of Korlat Wind Farm as well as monitor and supervise the construction. The wind farm is planned to be put into regular operation in August 2020.
WF Korlat does not have the status of eligible producer, i.e. it does not have the contract with the Croatian Energy Market Operator (HROTE). That is going to be the first new wind power plant in Croatia, which will generate electricity without guaranteed purchase at incentive price. Market prices of electricity were used to determine the cost-effectiveness of the investment.
