Wind Power Stations in South Evia

South Karystia and the wider region of South Evia have been at the center of development plans for large wind farms since 1998. The rationale behind the mass installation of wind turbines is certainly not to serve local needs or even to contribute to the development of RES based on principle of proportionality, but the supply of the central system with the maximum utilization of the wind potential of South Evia. The central and regional administration of recent years is constantly approving more wind farms without considering the final result that will be the transformation of South Evia into an energy center. The accumulation of wind farms catalyzes the elementary spatial planning and will have incalculable effects on the local environment, the quality of life and the local economy. The responsibility for the future that is specified for South Evia, bears also the local community that left the plans of the central administration to develop without any resistance.

 

How many wind turbines

To date, 411 wind turbines have been installed in the Municipality of Karystos, while about as many others are in different stages of licensing. More specifically:

 

                         Karystos municipality (ΡΑΕ, March 2021)

Operating

    411 wind turbines

Installation licences

    124  wind turbines

Production licences

    163 wind turbines

Evaluation applications

    147 wind turbines

     Total

    845 wind turbines ( 1.843 ΜW )

Two new high voltage lines and 5 substations have been constructed for the transmission of electricity. Also, if the new licenses proceed, a third high voltage line will be constructed.

 

Wind turbines in the area of ​​Ochi

The Ochi Area is a double protected area - it belongs to the Natura network (GR 2420001) and is a Special Protection Zone (GR 2420012). Nevertheless, the goal has been to install wind turbines at a point where its integrity is endangered. Around the village of Antia are 40 wind turbines which are the oldest installed wind turbines since 1998. In 2017 and after 73 wind turbines of the company ENEL and also 35 wind turbines of the company Jasper are installed that occupy ridges and fraudulent locations causing incredible disaster.

At the same time, 26 wind turbines have been installed on the borders and around the protected area (Mytilineos company). The final blow to the protected area will be given by the installation of 111 wind turbines of the company TERNA that will occupy all the other free zones in the area.
