Country Module “Romania/Bulgaria” … April 17-19, 2015

Wind farm Casimcea

MSc Program “Renewable Energy in Central & Eastern Europe”
Go East – the students of the class 2013-2015 spent three very interesting days in Romania. The main topic was to get an in-depth look on the (renewable) energy situation in Romania and Bulgaria.

On the first day, as usual for country modules, an excursion to renewable energy sites in Romania took place. At the first stop the group visited the Verbund wind farm Casimcea. The project manager Daniel Gaescu provided a very interesting insight about erecting and operating a large wind farm. The group visited a wind turbine and an impressive substation, which was necessary to build in order to feed in the electricity into the national grid.
After that the group visited a 1 MV PV-plant, built and operated by the Romanian Monsson group. This company also runs Europe’s largest onshore wind farm with 600 MW installed capacity. Next we were invited to visit their headquarters and electricity dispatch centre in Constantia. The day ended with a nice dinner by the Black Sea.

The second day started with Daniel Gaescu (Verbund), who provided an overview over the current situation of renewable energy in Romania. Iarina Moisa (Alpiq Group) explained the legal and economic framework and Mark Suer (ImWind Group) ended the day with an exciting lecture about one of his wind power and a small hydro power projects in Romania.

On the third day Vasil Rashev (EWS Consulting) explained the Bulgarian (renewable) energy situation in his quite well prepared presentation.

Overall this country module received very good feedback from the students.
