Wind company Desarollos Eolicos SA, a subsidiary of Abengoa, the former Spanish partner of Kenetech of California, is planning to erect a new wind farm in the Tarifa area in southern Spain. It is the ninth wind farm the company has announced in recent months. The project, to be situated at Tahivilla, a location close to several existing clusters of turbines in the Tarifa area, will boast 100 turbines and produce some 30 MW of power. The turbines will be Abengoa's still untested A-300 design, according to the plans. Desarollos Eolicos SA also has its eyes on Galicia in the northwest where it plans to erect eight wind farms with a combined output of over 200 MW. All the wind farms will use the A-300 (Windpower Monthly, October 1994). The Tahivilla project is still at a very early stage. The announcement was made in line with Spanish law which requires companies to advertise their plans in the local press to enable citizens to present their objections to projects within a 30 day period.
