German turbine maker Enercon has completed its second wind plant in mainland Spain. The 4.8 MW Peña Otero plant of eight Enercon 600 kW turbines has gone up in the province of Burgos in Castile and León. It is nearby Enercon's first mainland project, the 9 MW La Mesa wind station, also of 600 kW units and developed by a company called Burgalesa Generación Eólica. Enercon declines to confirm whether the same developer is behind its latest project. Most of Enercon's activity in Spain has been in the Canary Islands where it has 31 MW up and running. While few of Enercon's Canary Island projects involve more than a handful of machines, Peter Hartschuh, of the company's Spanish division, says it has supplied an 18.6 MW plant in Gran Canaria and a 6.6 MW plant in Tenerife. Enercon's total for Spain is 45 MW.
