Spanish utility Iberdrola building in France and Greece
1 September 2005
Spanish utility Iberdrola is building its first wind projects in France -- four developments totalling 31.7 MW in the Morbihan department in Brittany, scheduled for completion by the end of the year. They were developed by Germany's P&T Technologie but were sold to Iberdrola in June (Windpower Monthly, July 2005). Vestas will provide 15, V80 2 MW turbines and two V52 850 kW units for the projects. Iberdrola has also signed a EUR 78 million deal to buy 56 MW of wind plant in Greece from Spain's Gamesa Energía, including a commitment to buy 110 MW of Gamesa Eólica turbines for projects going up during 2005-2008 in Greece and other European countries. Iberdrola says it will raise its 24% share in Greece's leading wind developer, Rokas, to 49.9%. Rokas aims to operate at least 600 MW of the country's 2000 MW target for 2010. Meanwhile, Gamesa says it has 700 MW at various stages of development in Greece.
