Renewable energy company DRI acquires 126 MW solar farm in Romania

DRI, the EU renewable energy arm of the DTEK Group, continues to invest in Romania by purchasing a 126 MW solar park project in Văcărești, Dâmbovita County from local developers. This is DRI’s third renewable energy project in Romania and another step towards its goal of achieving 1 GW of renewable energy in the country by 2028, according to The Diplomat.  

DRI already has two operational projects that have been producing electricity since the beginning of the year: a 53MW solar farm in Glodeni, Mureș County, and a 60MW wind farm in Ruginoasa, Iași County, the first to be built in a decade in Romania. With the addition of Văcărești solar park, DRI now has a 239MW renewable portfolio in Romania.

Construction of the Văcărești solar park will begin in autumn 2024 and is expected to be operational the following autumn. The solar farm is expected to produce 205.8 GWh of electricity – enough to power about 50,000 households and avoid 48,600 tonnes of carbon emissions per year.
