Acciona Energía, through its renewable energy subsidiary EHN, has signed an agreement with Energías Renovables Mediterráneas (Renomar) to construct 21 turnkey wind farms totalling 793MW. This contract, including the infrastructure related to the wind farm’s energy output, represents € 850 million (including taxes). Renomar’s work in the field of wind energy has begun with the construction of three wind farms in the north of the province of Castellón, Spain, totalling 124.5MW, and the construction of several other wind farms will begin this year. The company expects to complete the implementation of its wind power plan in three years. Renomar, jointly owned at 50% by the Valencia-based company Med Wind and EHN, the renewable subsidiary of the Acciona Group, will carry out most of the project with wind turbines of INGETUR technology. Renomar will install 453 turbines of the IT-1500 model, representing a total installed capacity of 679.5MW (86.5% of the total). The remainder –113.9MW – will consist of 134 model G52-850 wind turbines. The electricity produced in these ten wind farms in the north of Castellón province will be sent to the grid through a 400kV substation constructed by REE in the municipality of Morella.
