The company Wind Energie, s.r.o. has announced its intention to build a wind park in the north of Slovakia, near the town of Tvrdošín.

The estimated cost of the project ranges from €23 million to €30 million, depending on the alternative the company eventually chooses. According to investment plans that have been submitted for Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), seven to nine power generating units should be built in the wind park, the SITA newswire wrote. Total installed capacity should be between 16,000 and 21,000 kilowatts. The start of construction is scheduled for March of next year. It should be completed a year later and the wind park should start generating electricity in May of 2011. The company Wind Energie, s.r.o., was established in 2004.

In the past four years, the Economy Ministry has not issued a single licence confirming compliance of an investment plan with Slovakia's long-term energy policy concept to any investor planning a wind farm in Slovakia. Spokesman for the Economy Ministry Branislav Zvara said that no investor can start building an energy source without this licence.
