Renewable Energy Receives HSBC Loan to Buy Spanish Wind TurbinesLouise Downing
Renewable Energy Generation Ltd., a developer and operator of wind farms, received a 15 million-euro ($20 million) loan from HSBC Holdings Plc to buy wind turbines from Spain.
Renewable Energy used the so-called trade finance facility to buy three, 2-megawatt machines from Gamesa Corp. Tecnologica SA, the Jersey, Channel Islands-based developer said today in an e-mailed statement.
The developer is installing the devices at an onshore wind farm in Cambridgeshire, south-east England, according to the statement. The project is expected to start working later this year. Renewable Energy operates 11 wind farms totalling about 57.2 megawatts and has six projects with planning consent awaiting construction.
