The mayor of Dunajská Lužná, Ladislav Cingel, confirmed to the SITA newswire that the planned wind farm is to be located near the protected natural area of Dunajské Luhy, an area known for migrating birds. Alfa Wind, s.r.o. said it selected the location based on its wind potential, technical prerequisites for connection to the national power grid and also taking into consideration nature conservation areas, protected landscape and consultations with the mayors of the municipalities concerned. The company had originally planned to start construction of the park in September, with a planned completion date in August next year. The wind park, with eighteen two-megawatt wind turbines, should start generating electricity a month after completion. SITA
