Iberdrola has secured environmental permits for a new 70MW wind farm in Spain.
The Iglesias wind farm is located in Burgos in Castilla y León.
The project will feature one of the world's most powerful onshore wind turbines, and Siemens Gamesa's 5.X platform equipment, the company informed.
According to Iberdrola, the “nacelles will be assembled at the Siemens Gamesa plant in Agreda and the gearboxes for the wind turbines, with 6MW and 170 metres of rotor, will be manufactured in Lerma.”
Besides, different regional and national suppliers will look after producing different components, such as the wind turbine towers in Avilés and Linares, as per the company.
It further stated that this project will generate clean energy to supply over 66,000 homes annually.
According to Iberdrola, the project will have an investment of around €72 million. The project will provide employment opportunities to locals and will also employ civil works companies and will be involved in the promotion of industrial suppliers.
