The Tihuţa Pass is situated at an altitude of 1,200 m (3,900 ft).

As of 2008, there is an installed capacity of 76 megawatts (MW) of wind power in Romania, up from the seven MW installed capacity in 2007.[1][2] Until December 2010, Romania will add around 440 MW to its installed wind capacity from two wind farms: Fântânele-Cogealac and the EDP Peştera.[3] A total number of 170 wind turbines will be installed in 2010 enough to power over 500,000 homes.[4]

The Fântânele Wind Farm will become operational in stages. First, 139 General Electric 2.5xl turbines will be built; they stand 100 metres (330 ft) tall and have a blade diameter of 99 m (325 ft).[5] The wind turbines will have a 2.5 MW capacity and will be operational by December 2009.[6] The second stage will be operational by 2010 and will have an installed capacity of 252.5 MW.[7] When completed, it will be the largest onshore wind farm in Europe, surpassing the Maranchon Wind Farm, the largest wind farm as of August 2009.[5]

Romania has a wind-power potential of around 14,000 MW,[8] and a energy-generating capacity of 23 terawatt-hours.[8] The country's wind power capacity that can be assimilated by the national transport grid is between 3,000 MW and 9,000 MW,[9] while only in the last two years the total power of the requests for connecting to it was about 22.800 MW.[10] The Dobruja region, which consists of Constanţa and Tulcea counties, has the second-highest wind potential in Europe.[11]

The Romanian company Blue Investment will invest US$84 million in a 35 MW wind farm in Baia, Tulcea County that will have 14 Nordex N90 turbines with a capacity of 2.5 MW each.[12] Several companies are interested in investing in wind farms in Romania. The Italian company Enel Green Power, a subsidiary of Enel, plans to build several wind farms with a total capacity of 350 MW.[13] The Swiss conglomerate Cofra Group will build two wind farms, one that will have a capacity of 700 MW in Dobrogea and one that will have a capacity of 400 MW in Neamţ and Suceava counties; the total investment will amount to $1.65 billion.[14] In 2008, Iberdrola bought 50 wind farm projects, with a combined installed capacity 1,600 MW, from two companies for $450 million.[15] Romanian companies interested in building wind farms include Electrica and Green Energy, which have plans to build wind farms that will have a installed capacity of 310 MW with total investments of $420 million.[16][17] The Hungarian company Sinus Holding will build five wind farms in the Northern Moldavia region, having an installed capacity of 700 MW and totaling $800 million in capital investment, that will be built by December 2009.[18]

The first offshore wind-power project in Romania will be constructed by the United States–based Blackstone Group, which will invest $1.4 billion in a 500 MW wind farm located in the Constanţa County sector of the Black Sea on a 40 km2 (15 sq mi) area situated 6 km (3.7 mi) from the shoreline.[19][20] The project will consist of 100 wind turbines producing five MW each; they will be installed in water up to 50 m (160 ft) deep. The project is expected to be commissioned in 2011. - Correction: the named project will be developed into the North Sea, not Black Sea as Blackstone Group L.P. haven't mentioned anything in such respect.
