The transaction value is not specified, but the US company already owns eight wind farms in Austria with a total capacity of 161 megawatts, and solar power plants in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, with a capacity of 40 MW. Currently holds ContourGlobal RES plants with a capacity of 1.4 GW located in South America, Europe and Africa, explained from the company. ContourGlobal attended the Bulgarian energy market – the company owns the Maritsa East 3. The company bought the plant from the Italian Enel in June 2011 for an amount of 230 million EUR.
