A 600MW onshore wind farm in Romania (pictured), claimed to be the largest in Europe, is now in full operation and has started producing clean energy.

Located in the Romanian province of Dobruja, the €1.1 billion (£0.8bn) Fantanele-Cogealac wind park includes 240 2.5MW wind turbines, surpassing its rival in Scotland.

It is expected to generate power for more than one million households in Romania every year.

Ondrej Safar, Project Manager at CEZ said: “The 2.5MW technology offers the efficiency, availability and energy performance that will safeguard our success. Thanks to the Fantanele/Cogealac wind farm, CEZ is making a major contribution to increasing Romania’s renewable energy generation.”

He added Romania’s installed wind capacity was only 14MW prior to this project.
