Spanish clean energy group Forestalia has been awarded a contract by Spain’s Ministry of Energy to develop a 1200 MW wind farm.
The project is in Aragon in northeast Spain and builds on a tender that Forestalia won in January to develop 408 MW of wind farms and bioenergy plants.
GE Renewable Energy has been chosen to supply the turbines from its 3 MW product range to generate a total of 1500 MW between the two projects. The turbines will be entirely manufactured in Europe.
Jérôme Pécresse, president of GE Renewable Energy, said the project “will drive renewable energy growth and cost competitiveness in Europe. GE is immensely proud that the turbine that will equip the future farms is a European product, with the nacelle produced in Germany in addition to the towers and blades manufactured in Spain.”
