Spain's Gamesa Energia recently inaugurated its first wind power plant in Greece. Gamesa built the 17 MW installation, powered by 20, G58-850 kW turbines, at Alogorachi near Anavra town in the Tesalia region of central mainland Greece. The plant will now be sold to Iberdrola under a framework agreement in 2005 in which Iberdrola agreed to buy 56 MW in Greece from Gamesa Energia (Windpower Monthly, September 2005). Gamesa has over 600 MW under development in Greece, of which 345 MW has been granted production licenses. Iberdrola already has 200 MW operating in Greece and 44.9 MW under construction through its strategic partner, Rokas, in which it owns a 49.9% stake.
