Vejo Parkai, a company owned by Enefit Green, a subsidiary of Estonia's Eesti Energia, and foreign-owned Windfarm Akmene One are planning to build a total of around 50 wind turbines with a total capacity of almost 300 megawatts (MW) in the northern Lithuanian district of Akmene, informed LETA/BNS.

Windfarm Akmene One, which won Lithuania's first technology-neutral green energy promotion auction in January, plans to build up to 31 turbines.

Publicly available environmental impact assessment documents show that each turbine will have a nominal capacity of 5.6 MW, bringing the total capacity to up to 173.6 MW.

Vejo Parkai is planning to build 20 turbines will a capacity of 6 MW each and a total capacity of 120 MW.

Windfarm Akmene One said earlier that it was planning to build a farm of up to 18 turbines with a total capacity of 90-101 megawatts (MW). The company, which won the auction with a zero subsidy bid, will be allocated the entire annual production quota of 0.3 terawatt-hours (TWh) that was auctioned, but will receive no premium on top of the market price.  

The company is likely bid in the second auction planned to be held in May to allocate a 0.7 TWh quota.
