Madeira order for Spanish Eozen

Eozen, a Spanish company making 1.5 MW wind turbines under licence from Germany's Vensys, has been awarded the contract for a 12 MW project on the Portuguese island of Madeira by developer Perform 3, a national wind veteran. It is Eozen's third contract since its 400 MW nacelle and blade facility started up last year in the Marquesado de Zinete area of Granada province in Spain's deep south. Perform 3's Aurleio Tavares makes much of the turbine's direct drive configuration and use of a permanent magnet synchronous generator, which he says contribute to grid stability, especially important for weak island electricity systems. The deal brings Eozen's total orders to 45 MW. Utility Iberdrola, which has 15 MW on order, says it will use more Eozen machines for a 300 MW extension planned for its existing 198 MW El Marquesado development, next to Eozen's factory.
