The purpose of the project is the generation of green electricity through the construction of wind power turbines with a total capacity of up to 201MW located in four clusters North 1, North 2, South 1 and South 2 west-north-west from the town Casimcea, Tulcea district in Romania. The expected net annual generation of the project activity is approximately 563 GWh, once fully perational. By replacing fossil fuel based power generation of the national Romanian electricity grid approximately 518,955 tCO2 will be reduced per year. The project is being developed by S.C. Alpha Wind S.R.L. 
(Project´s Focal Point PFP according to Romanian track 1 procedure) and SC CAS Regenerabile SRL. The technology to be employed is wind turbines with the following technical specifications: The project proponents adopt advanced commercial wind power technology for the construction of the proposed project activity. A total of 43 turbines with a capacity of 2.3 MW per turbine and 34 turbines with a capacity of 3 MW per turbine will be installed. The electricity will be fed into the grid at a new 400/110kV transformer station situated west of the village Rahman, which will be built by the project proponents.
The baseline scenario describes the electricity generated by the Romanian electricity grid. The
emission factor for the grid was provided by the Romanian energy regulator ANRE and was fixed for the crediting period at 0.9215 tCO2e/MWh. The project will be implemented until early 2012, so the estimated emission reductions for the time up to 31st December 2012 are 332,968 tCO2.
Current status of the project Under development
Total verified emission reductions 0.0 t CO2 equivalent
