Danish Vestas and Spanish Gas Natural Fenosa sealed an agreement at WindEurope 2017 in Amsterdam to build 86 MW of wind energy across five new wind parks in Spain. The order showcases Vestas’ 2 MW and 4 MW platforms’ versatility and flexibility to maximise energy output across different wind regimes.
The five wind parks will be Vestas’ first projects derived from Spain’s latest auctions held in May. Commissioning and installation of the wind turbines is expected for the second half of 2018.
Signing the contract in Amsterdam, Executive Vice President of Vestas Sales, Juan Araluce, said that “This contract proves Vestas’ capability to add value for our customers by providing competitive and tailor-made solutions that meet their specific needs. In this case, each wind park required different turbine models to optimise performance at the lowest cost of energy and we are proud to see that, once again, Gas Natural Fenosa Renovables has put its trust in our products and expertise”.
The renewables branch of Gas Natural Fenosa, one of the leading utilities worldwide, has installed more than 400 MW of Vestas’ turbines in Spain, the latest installed in 2016.
