Acciona begins its first wind farm in Croatia

Acciona Energy has started construction work on the 30-megawatt (MW) Jelinak wind park in Croatia, the first installation of this type it has installed in that country. The Company thus strengthens its international expansion and becomes the first Spanish wind power developer to open a wind park in Croatia.

Located in the region of Split-Dalmatia, in the north-west of the country, Jelinak will consist of twenty 1.5 MW turbines with Acciona Windpower technology. The project will produce 81 million kilowatt-hours a year, covering the electricity consumption of over 30,000 Croatian homes and replacing fossil fuels equivalent to around 48,000 barrels of oil.

The clean energy generated from Jelinak will avoid the emission of 77,841 metric tonnes of CO2 to the atmosphere from conventional coal-fired power stations, with a cleaning effect on the atmosphere equivalent to around four million trees.

Through this first wind park in Croatia, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2012, Acciona is taking a further step in the process of internationalisation of its Energy Division, which already owns and operates installations in 13 countries. In addition to the Jelinak wind park in Croatia, Acciona expects to start building a wind farm in Costa Rica this year.

At the end of 2011 Acciona had 33% of its wind power capacity outside Spain (2,283 MW from a total of 6,920 MW). Last year, 93% of Acciona?s new capacity was installed outside Spain.

Acciona currently owns wind parks on four continents, in addition to those in Spain: America, with 622 MW in the USA, 556 MW in Mexico and 181 MW in Canada; Europe, with 150 MW in Germany, 120 MW in Portugal, 92 MW in Italy, 48 MW in Greece, 38 MW in Poland and 24 MW in Hungary; Asia, with 85 MW in India and 62 MW in South Korea, and Oceania, with 305 MW in Australia.
