A 300 MW deal between Spanish wind developer Energía Hidroeléctrica de Navarra (EHN) and General Electric Wind Energy has been "reactivated" says GE Wind. The turbines are for use in projects developed by EHN's former affiliate, Energías Eólicas Europeas (EEE). The deal was signed in 2002, prior to the split between EHN and its former partner, utility Iberdrola, which now owns EEE entirely. Execution of the GE deal has been pending permits for a chain of projects developed by EEE in the Cuenca province of Castile-La Mancha. Previously, only 50 MW had been given the go-ahead, supplied by GE Wind last year prior to the EHN/Iberdrola split. The GE turbines will be made at its Noblejas facility in Castile-La Mancha. The company expects to complete the contract by the end of next year.
