Enel Green Power Spain has connected the Oriche wind farm to the power grid. The facility is located in the districts of Allueva, Anadón and Fonfría in the province of Teruel and has a capacity of 14.4 MW.
The investment in this project amounts to 14.8 million euros.
The Oriche wind farm consists of four turbines, each with a capacity of 3.6 MW, and will produce approximately 48 GWh annually, sufficient to provide electricity to 15.000 households. When fully operational, the plant would prevent about 31.800 tons of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere annually.
Construction of this renewable capacity is part of Endesa’s plan to completely decarbonize its generation mix by 2050, of which Enel Green Power Spain is its renewable energy subsidiary. The next milestone in this process, in line with the company’s latest strategic plan, is to reach 10.2 GW of installed renewable capacity by 2022, from the estimated 7.4 GW by the end of 2019. The total investment will be about €3.8 billion.
