Located in the province of Rhodope, Thrace, northern Greece, the Mikronoros wind farm has commenced operations, having been fully energised and connected to the grid.
Iberdrola adds 33.6MW of new clean capacity to its portfolio with Rokas Renewables in Greece bringing total installed capacity to 315MW. The complex consists of eight V150 wind turbines with 4.2 MW unit capacity, a hub height of 105 m and a rotor diameter of 150 m. Construction of the wind farm and access roads was carried out by Greek company Faraday. Engineering company Hitachi was responsible for the civil works and electromechanical assembly tasks at the existing Patriarchis substation, which was totally renovated, and an outdoor gas insulated system (GIS) replaced the existing AIS infrastructure for connection to the 150kV grid, owned by the transmission grid operator (IPTO).
