Rosatom is looking for a foreign technology partner for construction of wind farms in Russia. According to Rosatom’s First Deputy CEO Kirill Komarov, the company expects to sign a relevant contract by the end of 2016, reports TASS.

Rosatom has won contracts for 610 MW of wind capacity in the extended procurement for state-supported clean energy capacity distribution in 2018-2020. The government requires that 65% of the equipments of the plants is manufactured within Russian boarders.

“Every station is to be built in Russia, and then the government is ready to pay for the project,” Mr Komarov said on the sidelines of the UN conference on the climate change held on Saturday. “The most important choice to make is a right partner – it should be prepared for a major transfer of technologies into Russia.”

According to him, there are 21 companies that expressed interest in the project. Rosatom has already chosen three companies, therefore, “before the end of the year, we [Rosatom] believe to decide on the partner and sign necessary papers”.

The project investments amount to about EUR1 billion, according to Rosatom’s First Deputy CEO.

Earlier in July, Rosatom press service said that wind plants would be built in regions with a high wind power potential, naming the Republic of Adygea, Krasnodar Kray, and Rostov Region.
