With the attendance of the civil authorities, the operation of two wind parks, with total rated power of 46 MW, of the Greek companies “Arkadika Meltemia S.A.” and “Aiolika Parka Arkadias S.A.”, was inaugurated. The two companies are subsidiaries of Eunice Energy Group and the parks are located in Vlachokerasia area, at an altitude of 1,100 metres, 20 km. south of Tripoli.
The total investment for the development of the Wind Parks is estimated at approximately EUR 50,000,000. The funding was supported by the banks Bayerische Hypo- und Vereinsbank A.G. and Commercial Bank of Greece S.A. and the project was completed within 16 months, where for that period, 60 people were involved. The operation of the wind parks created 14 new employment positions in total, while the compensative benefit of the bordering municipalities will be more than EUR 250,000 per year, for the following twenty years.
