Enel Green Power Starts Spain Wind Farm, Re-Powers 3 More

Enel Green Power SpA, the renewable energy unit of Italy’s largest utility, started one new Spanish wind farm and re-powered three others, connecting a total of 29 megawatts to the grid.

Enel Green Power’s Spanish subsidiary completed the 18-megawatt Agreda wind farm in northern Spain’s Castile and Leon region, the Rome-based company said today in an e-mailed statement. The plant is forecast to generate about 48 million kilowatt-hours of power per year, it said.

The Spanish unit also upgraded and connected to the grid three wind farms in the Canary Islands, adding almost 2 megawatts in capacity to bring their combined capacity to 11 megawatts, the company said. The unit, Enel Green Power Espana, is 60-percent owned by Enel Green Power, and the rest is owned by Enel SpA’s unit Endesa SA.
