The Sorgenia company, of the Italian industrial group Compagnie Industriali Riunite (CIR) intends to build in Romania several wind turbines, in Vaslui county. 

At present, Sorgenia has authorization for the construction of a wind farm with total capacity of 106 MW,  the PR manager of CIR group Salvatore Ricco said.

The authorisations, obtained by Sorgenia in December 2009 and April 2010 are issued for Falciu, Vaslui county.
