In another sign of rising confidence in the Spanish wind industry, the oil and gas major unveiled the follow-up to its 335MW Delta wind project by unwrapping the plans for the 860MW Delta 2 complex.

This takes Repsol's total renewable energy capacity under development to just over 2GW and brings the company's total renewable energy portfolio, including existing assets, to almost 5GW. 

Delta 2 will comprise 26 wind projects located in the Huesca, Zaragoza, and Teruel provinces of northern Spain. It will be developed and built over the next three years, Repsol said.

Repsol is targetting to be a zero-emissions company by 2050. 

The 335MW Delta project is under construction near Zaragoza and due online by the end of 2020.
