WindparkStanglalm GmbH has been trying to receive a permit to develop Styria’s wind power plants for around 4 years. The hurdles were numerous, including many debates with citizens as well as a lengthy environmental impact assessment study carried out by professionals. Now, finally, with all the proper documentation submitted and the assessment coming up positive, the Austrian regional government has allowed the company to begin work.
Two projects were submitted for the expansion of the region’s wind power generation facilites. The first one concerns the construction of 4 additional turbines at the Pretul II wind power plant. The second one was regarding the establishment of an entirely new power generation facility in the Fischbach Alps, which will host 9 turbines of its own.
