The Project has followed the regulatory public consultation and disclosure process in accordance with the relevant national legislation. Additional stakeholder consultation activities will be conducted by Crucea Wind Farm S.A. in line with international standards. The stakeholder engagement process will, however, continue throughout the lifetime of the Project. Documents published on this homepage shall provide more information regarding the stakeholder engagement process.

The Non-Technical Summary (NTS) provides an overview on the potential environmental and social impacts associated with the construction and operation of the project and on the measures considered to keep these potential impacts at acceptable levels so that no harmful effects will be induced and all applicable norms and regulations are met.

The Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP) is aimed to provide the framework for ensuring meaningful Project stakeholders’ consultation and engagement, in line with IFC Performance Standards and Guidelines. It is to be mentioned that, according to IFC standards, stakeholder engagement must be based on on-going consultations that continue through the entire life cycle of the Project. Therefore the SEP is to be considered a “living” document that has to be periodically updated by the company to reflect stakeholder engagement development along Project lifetime.

This document is the report examining Crucea Wind Farm’s progress toward implementing the Project SEP. It provides information of activities conducted in this regard until October 2013.

The Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) is to supplement existing EIA Study (Tudor Darie, Environmental Impact Assessment of Crucea North Wind Farm, 2010) with additional information and assessment, for achieving compliance with international ESIA standards.

The Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) summarizes actions to avoid, reduce or otherwise control potentially significant environmental and social impacts identified in the Environmental Impact Assessment. These actions will be conducted during construction and operation of the wind farm.

The Additional Assessment is to ensure that the purpose of European environmental legislation on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora and the conservation of wild birds applicable to the wind farm are met.

The project presentation is prepared for disclosure meetings on the Project Environmental and Social Impact Assessment and provides a project overview, summary of potential impacts and defined mitigation measures as examples and information on the engagement process and contacts for stakeholders.

The Supplementary Report has been prepared to provide additional information on the potential impact of the Crucea Wind Farm on Natura2000 protected areas. The aim of this document is to supplement the Additional Assessment (AA) Study by assessing the biodiversity monitoring results from the field surveys undertaken during August – October 2013 and by refining the collision risk modelling outcomes and conclusions.
