Turbine maker Made Tecnologías says it installed 209 MW during 2001, bringing its cumulative total to 424 MW. The company's most recent project in Galicia -- a group of wind stations known as the Faladoira wind complex -- accounts for 100 MW. In December the complex was still waiting to go on-line. Faladoira, in the province of Coruna, consists of 146 Made 660 kW turbines. The complex is for Spain's largest utility Endesa, which is the owner of both Made and the developing company, Endesa Cogeneración y Renovables (ECYR). The turbines are next to the 1400 MW As Pontes thermal power station and two small-hydroelectric plant, also owned by Endesa. ECYR estimates Faladoira's annual production at 262,000 MWh, enough to meet the entire demand of Coruna. The remaining 109 MW installed by Made last year is distributed throughout the regions of Asturias, Aragón, Castila and León and the Canary Islands.
