Seven months after opening a commercial branch in Madrid, Suzlon has landed its third and largest wind turbine sale in Spain, a 102.9 MW contract with developer Viento y Energía, its second Spanish customer. The 49, 2.1 MW units will go to the developer's Loma de Ayala complex of four wind stations in the Almería province of Andalucía. Viento y Energía is a joint venture between Rafael Pérez Pire, a regional magnate, and Andalucian savings bank, Unicaja, which holds minority shares in numerous Andalucian wind projects. The contract comes on the heels of two deals totalling 84 MW for Castile and León region, both with developer Iniciativa Energética. "That's not bad consolidation: 111 machines and 187 MW lined up in just over half a year; and we expect more to come this year," says Suzlon's Felipe Garcia Mina.
