GE Renewable Energy has been chosen to provide its technology for the 324MW Phoenix onshore wind project in the Aragón region of Spain.

The project will see the creation of ten new wind parks in the region and will be developed by Mirova, ENGIE and Forestalia, using 91 units of GE’s 3MW turbines.

GE Renewable Energy Europe CEO Peter Wells said: “Phoenix marks the continuation of the great work we have done with Forestalia in Goya.

“We are excited for this significant milestone that validates the re-emergence of wind energy in Spain. We will continue building on our local experience to keep powering Aragon and Spain with clean energy.”

“We are excited for this significant milestone that validates the re-emergence of wind energy in Spain.”

GE will manufacture the turbines at its site in Salzbergen, Germany, while the blades will be produced at its LM Wind Power European facilities. The company has also signed a 20-year full-service agreement.

The agreement scope includes offering data-driven insights, expert recommendations, and local advanced field services through GE’s services and monitoring sites across Spain.

GE will begin the installation works immediately at the ten new parks, which will be financed by JP Morgan, Santander and Sabadell.

Phoenix’s wind parks are part of the renewable energy auction that was awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Energy in May 2017.
