Enercon enters into Valencia
1 March 2002
Germany's Enercon is the wind turbine supplier named in a business plan which aims to build 608 MW in Spain's east coast region of Valencia on sites with winds of 7-8 m/s, says Diego Conteras of Alabe, which makes up half of Guadalaviar, the consortium behind the plan. The other half is controlled by Enerfin, the project development wing of electrical engineering giant Elecnor. Contreras confirms that mostly 2 MW Enercon direct-drive machines will be used. So far, Enercon has just 45 MW on-line in Spain, mostly in the Canary Islands. Guadalaviar is just one of five wind developers to share in a development concession by Valencia's regional government totalling 2142 MW. Enercon's most immediate response to the success of Guadalaviar's plan was to uproot from its Spanish base in the northern province of Burgos and set up its Spanish headquarters in Valencia.
