Endesa starts work on Galicia 76 MW despite divestment of renewables

Spain's top utility, Endesa, is still clinching permits for large wind complexes despite undergoing a process of divestment in its renewables affiliate, Endesa Cogeneración y Renovables (Ecyr), while upping its stake in coal-fired generation. Ecyr has just started ground moving work for a 75.9 MW wind station cluster in Spain's dominant wind region of Galicia. The so-called Fonsegrada-Punago wind complex will see 115, 660 kW turbines stretched across five municipalities in the province of Lugo. The turbines come from Made Tecnologías, recently taken over in its entirety by Spain's top turbine supplier, Gamesa, and formerly belonging to Endesa. Ecyr estimates annual production at 207,449 MWh, bringing hefty returns on the overall EUR 65 million investment. Ecyr claims a record building schedule for Fonsegrada-Punago and says test operation will start before the end of the year. When complete, the complex will bring the company's online total in Galicia to around 426 MW, 856 MW nationwide.
