“Zod Wind”. CJSC has drafted 60MW wind energy project at Zod pass area, Armenia to the east of the Lake Sevan. The project addresses effective use of the wind energy potential in the region and development of the electricity production from renewable energy sources. The aim of the project is to provide energy and environmental security, reduce the dependency of Armenia on imported organic fuels and strengthen energy independence of the country.
The study conducted by Lahmeyer Int’l GmbH (Germany) indicates the annual average wind speed of the site is about 8.2m/s at 50m height and net electricity generation potential is over 54 million kWh/year. “Zod Wind” has rented a land of 200ha, for the construction of power station and received permission to connect to the network.
