Work in Galicia, currently Spain's most promising area for wind development, has got under way in earnest, according to Ecotècnia, a Barcleona company with a 98 MW stake in the region. It has agreed with the Gines Navarro construction company and Union Fenosa, the local power company, for all seven of its wind farms in the region to be on the grid by January 1, 1998. The agreement provides for an ESP 15,000 million investment (60% Gines Navarro, 30% Union Fenosa and 10% Ecotècnia). Other projects in the area are being currently executed by Spain's Desarrollos E—licos, the Spanish-Danish concern Gamesa E—lica, and the US/Japanese-Seawest/Tomen venture. The area has a wind power ceiling which the regional government has put at 5000 MW.
