Endesa Half Way to 2,100 MW of Wind Power

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Spanish wind energy developer Endesa has passed the half way mark toward their goal of establishing 2,100 MW of renewable energy capacity. Tarifa, the company’s latest wind power complex that is located in the town of Tarifa, has five wind developments – La Manga, Rio Almodovar, El Ruedo, El Gallego, Cortijo de Iruelas — and 98 turbines. Once the EUR 75 million (US $97.2 million) Tarifa complex is operational Endesa will have a total installed capacity of 168.4 MW in the province. Turbines at the La Manga development began operation in December 2004 for operational anomalies testing. Once the testing is complete the turbines will go on to continuous operation, and the entire wind power complex should be online in 11 weeks. Across Spain as a whole, Endesa’s wind generation capacity now totals 1,124 MW with another 247 MW under construction, giving it a 14 percent share of the Spanish market.
