Siemens Gamesa and power producer Greenalia are to install three wind farms with a total capacity of 110MW in the provinces of A Coruña in northwest Spain.
The three wind farms will be equipped with 22 of Siemens Gamesa’s 5.0-145 turbines that the company states is , one of its most powerful models and is well-suited for sites with medium-level wind speeds.
The wind farms – Campelo, Bustelo and Monte Toural – are located in the municipalities of Coristanco, Santa Comba and Carballo and are scheduled to be commissioned by the end of 2023.
The agreement with Greenalia also includes the maintenance of the turbines for a period of 25 years.
The contracts follow others signed last year between the companies for wind farms also in A Coruña, including Alto da Croa, Alto da Croa II and Monte Tourado, with a total capacity of 30 MW and a service contract of 15 years.
“This agreement for three parks helps to strengthen our relationship with Greenalia, and I am sure this partnership will grow further in the years ahead,” said Paulo Soares, chief executive of Siemens Gamesa’s Southern European, African and Latin American operations.
“It’s also good news because it helps to increase our footprint in Spain, a key market for Siemens Gamesa which holds great prospects. We are ready to support the country’s growth in renewables and its energy transition path.”
María Moreno, chief executive of Greenalia Power Spain, added: “The wind farms are a new example of the development of our pipeline in Spain, with which Greenalia wants to be an active part in the process of decarbonisation and energy transition in Spain.”
The three wind farms will provide enough electricity to power close to 90,000 households, or around a quarter of the population of the province of A Coruña.
