- GE Renewable Energy to supply wind turbines from its 3 MW product range, which it will manufacture across Europe
Madrid, May 17, 2017
The Forestalia Group, through the Sociedad Aragonesa Transeuropea de Energías Renovables, has been awarded a contract by Spain’s Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda to develop a 1,200 megawatt (MW) wind farm in Aragón.
This builds on the tender that Forestalia won in January 2016 to develop 408.5 MW of wind farms and bioenergy stations, also in Aragón, Spain. The two contracts support Forestalia’s goal to boost wind energy production in the autonomous community as well as bring renewable energy generation to an efficient, open, and competitive market.
GE Renewable Energy was selected as the technology provider supplying its wind turbines from its 3 MW product range to generate a total of 1,500 MW between the two projects. GE will manufacture the wind turbines across three European facilities, including its Engineering Center of Excellence in Barcelona. The wind turbine will be manufactured in Salzbergen, Germany, and blades by LM Wind Power, which was recently acquired by GE Renewable Energy and has production plants in Ponferrada and Castellón. The project will be supported by GE’s service center in As Pontes.
