At WindEurope 2017 in Amsterdam, Vestas and Gas Natural Fenosa today sealed an agreement to build 86 MW of wind energy across five new wind farms in Spain. The order showcases Vestas’ 2 MW and 4 MW wind turbine platforms’ versatility and flexibility, utilising the V110-2.0 MW, V117-3.45 MW and V126-3.45 MW to maximise energy output across different wind regimes.
The five wind farms will be Vestas’ first projects derived from Spain’s latest auctions held in May. Commissioning and installation of the wind turbines is expected for the second half of 2018.
Signing the contract in Amsterdam, Executive Vice President of Vestas Sales, Juan Araluce, said: “This contract proves Vestas’ capability to add value for our customers by providing competitive and tailor-made solutions that meet their specific needs. In this case, each wind park required different turbine models to optimise performance at the lowest cost of energy and we are proud to see that, once again, Gas Natural Fenosa Renovables has put its trust in our products and expertise”.
The renewables branch of Gas Natural Fenosa, one of the leading utilities worldwide, has installed more than 400 MW of Vestas’ turbines in Spain, the latest installed in 2016.
