Located in the western part of the country around 50km from the Baltic Sea, the 24MW wind farm will be producing at least 80 GWh of clean electricity.

Nordex management board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard said: "What is particularly pleasing is that we will again be installing N117/3000 Generation Delta turbines. This makes Jurbarkas a further reference project for Generation Delta for locations with medium wind speeds."

Eurakras managing director Aleksandr Spiridonov said: "We believe Nordex offers with the N117/3000 turbine the right choice for our site with a good ratio of price versus estimated production."

Eurakras will develop the project, which is owned 86% by Renagro and 14% by Baltcap.

The contract also involves the provision of a premium service by Nordex over 15 years.

The Jurbarkas wind farm is scheduled to commence operations in November 2015.

Private equity company Renagro currently operates 6MW wind farms and some smaller wind sites in Lithuania while Baltcap is venture capital investor in the Baltic countries.
