Endesa to Embark on New Spanish Wind Facility

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Endesa announced they will have 21.5 MW of new wind capacity in Spain’s region of Castilla y Leon once its cogeneration and renewable energy subsidiary (Endesa Cogeneracion y Renovables) completes the construction of the Valpardo wind farm in the town of Navalperal de Pinares (Avila), located in the central part of the Malagon mountain range. The farm is scheduled to start up at the end of this year. It will be equipped with 25 Gamesa G-58 and G-52 wind turbines, each with a unit capacity of 850 kV and a height of 55 meters. With an installed capacity of 21.5 MW, this farm is expected to produce 57 GWh of power per year, the equivalent to the energy consumption of 14,250 households and will prevent 25,000 tons of CO2 emissions a year. This new farm – requiring an investment of Euro 20 million – is the fourth to be built by Endesa Cogeneracion y Renovables in Avila, in addition to the Navazuelo, Altos de Cartagena and Navas del Marques wind farms. When the Valpardo project has been completed Endesa will have total installed wind capacity of 70.23 MW in the region.
