To date, more than 40 units of heavy construction machinery, along with more than 100 technical and engineering workers and specialists, are already working on the site. Preliminary static studies and soil carrying capacity studies were carried out, and the delivery of the foundation materials has begun. In addition, two concrete manufacturing plants were installed with a total capacity of 170 cubic meters of concrete per hour. Work on the construction of wells and foundations for future wind turbines is also progressing.
NovaWind is a wind energy division of the Russian State Nuclear Energy Corporation ROSATOM, which is responsible for the implementation of all wind power projects. In total, by 2023, the companies that make up NovaWind will build wind energy plants with a total capacity of 1 GW.
