When completed, it will have a total power rating of 21 megawatts. Commissioning is scheduled for August 2015. The contract also includes a service and maintenance agreement for a period of 20 years.

The modern direct-drive wind turbines of the type Siemens SWT-3.0-101 are rated at three megawatts each. The rotor diameter is 101 meters. The wind power plant will generate power equivalent to the electricity consumption of up to 15,000 households and will prevent 17,500 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

Theolia has also signed a 20-year maintenance agreement for the project. This long-term program includes a comprehensive parts and labor guarantee, thus assuring energy availability. It will come into effect after the commissioning of the turbines in summer 2015.
