Ochakivsky wind farm LLC (Mykolaiv region) is planning to import ten wind turbines made by Germany’s Fuhrlander soon, the company’s head, Oleksandr Scherbatiuk, has told Interfax-Ukraine.

He said that it is planned to import ten FL 2500-100 wind urbines with a capacity of 2.5 megawatts each. In addition, the FL-Scada system with the WP4000 wind power software will be also imported.

Scherbatiuk said that the wind energy equipment would be used during the building of the second stage of the wind farm.

According to cabinet resolution No. 1219 of November 23, 2011 published on Friday, the wind power equipment was put on a list of energy saving equipment that can be imported without having to pay customs duties and value added tax.

In the future, the wind farm is planning to boost capacity to one gigawatt.
