With a total capacity of 289MW, the developments are located in Guadalajara, Lugo, Malaga, Zaragoza, Huesca, La Coruña and Cadiz.

The wind turbines will be installed at ten wind farms under development in these locations.

SGRE has also agreed to operate and maintain all of these wind farms.

A total of 28 SG 2.6-114 turbines will be installed for another energy company at three wind farms, two of which are in La Coruña.
