Due to our extensive experience in the wind energy sector in Bulgaria and the well-established positions we have from the earliest moment of its development in Bulgaria, Long Man has turned into a synonym for guarantee of quality and trustworthiness. Understanding the specifics of the industry and offering a full package of services, we have become a preferred partner for both Bulgarian and foreign investors. 
From the stage of the first draft we explore the different possibilities and through software simulations we determine the expected annual production when using different types of wind turbines. We also optimize the position of the machines in the park in order to achieve the best possible effect of using the wind as an energy source.

During the stage of feasibility study and investment planning we prepare ecological assessments and reports on Assessment for the Environmental Impact, we conduct procedures for change of land status and we cover all investment projects required for obtaining a building permit. Together with the highly professional design studios we are looking for the best possible ways for grid access of the projects both technically and financially. 
Throughout the installation process we guarantee complete control in accordance with the construction activities and the project documentation, fulfilling the functions of investor control.  We work with construction supervision on the documents required for Regulation 2 for commissioning and obtaining usage permission. 
In the course of the operation of the already constructed wind power plants, our clients can count on specialized consultations, related to the implementation of the grid connection contracts and the power purchase agreement, as well as consulting in relation to the rapidly changing legal base. Our team of professionals will consult you when signing insurance and security contracts, land rent or lease and all other activities related to the administration of the park during operation. 
The main directions of Long Man’s activity are wind studies and audits, development and management of projects, full due diligence when selling projects, commercial management and legal consultations. 

FREE MARKET
  • The purpose of establishing the electricity market in Bulgaria is creating a competitive environment for the traders of electricity which will reduce the energy price and increase the service quality. So, the customer is able to choose himself the trader to buy or sell electricity, to negotiate the terms of contract and billing, as well as the additional services related to servicing. Regardless of the choice of trader, each client must continue paying grid services to the operator to which network is connected, as these prices are regulated and they are not a subject of negotiation.
    The free market for supply of electricity in Bulgaria is already working and applying the latest amendments to the Energy Act, which provide that all customers connected to medium voltage, can choose their electricity supplier and negotiate the prices with him.
    Unlike the regulated market where the trade is carried out after the supply has been made and covers a period of one month, under the conditions of the free market, trade is carried out before the time of delivery and quantities have been traded on hourly basis. This means that the expected consumption for each hour is previously planned.
    After extensive market research, since the beginning of April 2015, Long Man Holding stepped on the free market as electricity consumer, concluding a contract with a licensed trader of electricity, according to current legislation.

    In regard to the electricity market for producers of renewable energy sources, it should be borne in mind that participating in the stock market, the producers must plan their future production very well because every trader needs to guarantee its supply. Because wind is unpredictable source, going to the free market is tough and intelligent task which needs specific expertise and the use of specialized software to reduce imbalance costs for producers.
    In this regard, since the middle of 2014, Long Man Holding participates actively in the implementation and improvement of forecasting software system for electricity produced from wind power plants.
