ACCIONA passes the figure of 200 wind parks installed in Spain

ACCIONA Energy has grid connected the Peña Nebina wind park in Zamora province (Spain), taking it above 200 wind parks installed in the country, either for itself or for other companies. The plant has a total capacity of 5,976 megawatts (MW), i.e. 28% of wind power capacity in Spain. The company now owns 163 wind parks (4,621 MW), representing almost 22% of the country?s total capacity.

The Peña Nebina wind park is located at Ferreruela (Zamora) and has a capacity of 20 MW spread across ten 2 MW wind turbines. With an estimated investment of around 28.6 million euros, it will generate clean energy equivalent to the consumption of 17,000 homes and will avoid the emission (annual average) of 52,740 metric tons of CO2 from coal-fired power stations. This is equivalent to cleaning effect on the atmosphere of 2.6 million trees through the process of photosynthesis. The construction of the wind park has meant the creation of around 200 direct jobs.

ACCIONA owns 21 wind parks totaling 519.7 MW in the region of Castilla y León, distributed as follows in different provinces: Palencia (8), Zamora (6), Burgos (3), Soria (2), Segovia (1) and Avila (1). It has also installed three wind parks for other customers, totaling 94.5 MW.

ACCIONA owns and operates wind parks in another nine regions of Spain. The major ones are Galicia (40 wind farms), Navarre (27), Valencia (26), Andalusia (21) and Castilla-La Mancha (17). These are followed by Catalonia (5s), Asturias (3), Aragon (2) and the Basque Country (1). ACCIONA has built 32 wind parks for its customers in Castilla-La Mancha, 2 in Murcia and 1 in Galicia, plus these three new ones in Castilla y León.
