WindSGC JSC (part of Rosatom's wind power division NovaWind) obtained the permit from the administration of the Kochubeevsky municipal district of the Stavropol Krai for the construction of the Kuzminskaya wind farm with a total capacity of 160 MW in the territory of Kochubeyevskiy urban district, the Stavropol Krai.
The permit was preceded by a positive opinion of design document expert examination and site investigation in respect of the wind farm construction that includes 64 wind turbines with a capacity of 2.5 MW each.
Successful expert examination confirms that the design documents for construction facilities comply with the site investigation results and the requirements specified in all technical regulations, in particular environmental, sanitary, epidemiological, fire safety requirements, regulatory and technical documentation and the Urban Development Code of the Russian Federation.
