Enefit Green produced 119.9 GWh of electricity in February, which is 12.4% less than in the same period last year. The production result was mainly influenced by the lower production in Estonian and Lithuanian wind farms.
The average wind speeds in February were 6.9 m/s and 7.0 m/s, respectively in Estonian and Lithuanian wind farms (in February 2022, the measured average wind speeds were 7.5 m/s and 8.5 m/s, respectively).
"In February, weather conditions were stable and there were no longer periods with gusty wind. As a result, the production results of wind farms were good, but they were lower than last year, when the weather was even more favourable for the wind production. However, one can be satisfied with the production, and there were no extraordinary stoppages affecting the result," commented Innar Kaasik, Member of the Management Board and Head of Production at Enefit Green.
The electricity and heat energy production of the cogeneration segment was relatively stable, decreasing by 2.2% and increasing by 0.2% respectively compared to the same month last year.
Pellet production was also stable in February growing by 1.3% compared to a year earlier to 11.7 thousand tons.
