RIGA - Latvijas Veja Parki wind park project, a joint venture of Latvenergo and Latvijas Valsts Mezi (LVM), might start generating electricity in 2026, said the company's board chairwoman Ilvija Boreiko in an interview with LETA.

Latvijas Veja Parki in a year should generate 2.4 TWh of energy. Boreiko said that this would require 100-120 turbines that are now being offered by manufacturers, but, at the same time, first, wind should be measured on the planned sites, and only then accurate estimations can be made.

She said that the turbines will not be placed on one site. Also, much will depend on the connection lines.

Boreiko said that procurement of turbines will be conducted in 2024, but first there are preparation works, for example, evaluation of the impact on the environment.

As reported, Latvijas Veja Parki was registered on July 22. The company's share capital is EUR 2 million and it belongs to Latvenergo (80 percent) and LVM (20 percent).
