Do you have enough capacity to develop a pipeline in Serbia?
— Our local head office is in Belgrade and our local team consists of specialists with extensive experience in renewable energy, supported by our colleagues at the headquarters. We are fully committed to the continuous development of a 200 MW large-scale wind farm called Celzijus 1 located in South Banat. This is the lighthouse project of RP Global Serbia.
