Spanish maker of Danish Bonus turbines, Izar, has confirmed new supply deals consolidating its recent comeback as a main player on the Spanish market. Utility Unión Fenosa has ordered 13, 1300 kW turbines for its Cabo Vilano plant in Galicia. Izar's Susana Castro expects the first units to arrive on site by spring. Castro also confirms a framework agreement to supply 170 MW -- also in 1300 kW machines -- to five projects belonging to Dutch utility Nuon. The projects have been managed since 1996 by Galician developer Desarrollos Eólicos SA (DESA), which Nuon bought in 2001. DESA claims the final go-ahead for the projects to be imminent. Izar is also reported to have clinched a framework agreement with developer Enviroil for Galicia, though client confidentiality currently shrouds the deal. Izar's big challenge now is to clinch contracts in Spain outside its home region of Galicia. In this respect, it has had more success in Portugal where it is putting up 18 MW for Germany's Energiekontor.
