The initial wind turbines are being erected as well as the installation of photovoltaic panels has started at Enefit Green's hybrid park in Purtse, Estonia.

5 wind turbines with a total capacity of 21MW will certainly be erected in at the site.

A solar park with 49,000 panels as well as a complete capacity of 32MW will certainly additionally be integrated in the very same location.

Both growths make use of the very same devices, substation, connection and connection capacity to bring the electrical energy produced from wind and also solar to consumers.

Given that from autumn to spring is the most effective time for wind power manufacturing as well as from springtime to autumn for solar power production, the electricity output of a hybrid plant is extra regular throughout the year as well as the network is better used stated Enfit Green.

Janek Lillemägi, senior project supervisor at Enefit Green claimed: "If solid winds don't hinder the work, a wind turbine can be assembled in two days.

" The lower tower areas have been put in all positions.

" Now the installation of the upper sections with a greater crane continues, followed by lifting the nacelles to the tops and also repairing the blades."

Lillemägi included that the transport of almost 70-metre wind turbine blades from the port of Paldiski to the wind ranch succeeded.

He claimed: "A total amount of 15 blades finished the journey of more than 200km without incident. The towers and also nacelles of the wind turbines were likewise efficiently provided.

" We get on time with the schedule of sending out the initial amount of electrical power from Purtse to the power network in the springtime."

The construction of the solar park in Purtse is proceeding according to the intended schedule also.

Project manager Rainer Tammus said: "The building and construction of the base frames for solar panels is nearing the finish line as well as the setup of almost 49,000 panels has started, lasting till the end of March.

" Nearly 70 individuals are servicing the site each day so we await the peak time for manufacturing."
