Vancouver, British Columbia [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Greenwind Power Corp. has become partners with Naturener S.A., through Naturener’s purchase of 100% of Energy Logics Inc. in a contract valued at US$ 400 million. The companies are jointly developing four wind energy projects in southwestern Alberta, Canada.
Naturener, a Spanish renewable energy company, has purchased 200 ACCIONA wind turbine generator units AW 77/1500 class II, for a total capacity of 300 MW. The units are destined for renewable energy wind farms located in Montana (U.S.) and Alberta in 2008.
“We are very pleased to have secured a large supply of turbines for our North American projects,” says Naturener USA and Naturener Canada CEO Jose M. Sanchez. “Acciona is a proven company with proven technology. Many developers are eager to secure wind turbines in a rapidly growing wind energy market. This contract was a critical step for Naturener in our efforts to produce more reliable, clean energy in North America.”
Naturener, which is planning 1,800 MW of renewable energy development projects in the U.S. and Canada., will bring its first North American project online in 2008 in Montana. Its partner, Greenwind Power Corp., focuses on the development of grid based wind farms in Southwest Alberta, the location of one of the strongest and steadiest wind regimes found anywhere in the world.
