Greenalia receives construction authorization for 100 new MW in the Iberian Peninsula

  • A total of 5 wind farms are planned in different Galician locations.
  • This is in addition to the 123 MW of the Orzar and Tornado facilities, two wind farms that have also just obtained the corresponding permits.

Greenalia has obtained the construction authorization for 5 new wind farms located in Galicia (Spain). With this new step, the company is making progress in the implementation of new renewable energy installations.

In this case, it is 100 MW of wind energy distributed in 5 wind farms. Two of them in the province of A Coruña, Penas Boas (15.6 MW) and Felga (20.8 MW); another two in the province of A Pontevedra, Touriñán-III (24 MW) and Suime (26.4 MW); and Monte Cordal (13.2 MW), in the province of Lugo.

The start-up of these 5 facilities will involve an overall investment of more than 80 million euros, to which will be added the corresponding contributions to be made to the owners for leasing and to the municipalities through fees and taxes. This economic impact will also boost the labor market, with a significant mobilization of local employment.

The expected annual production of these five facilities will exceed 320,000 MWh, equivalent to the annual consumption of 91,000 households. At the same time, this production will avoid the emission of 117,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.

Orzar and Tornado, supply for Resonac

The above authorizations, granted by the Xunta de Galicia, are in addition to the two previous administrative authorizations recently obtained for the Orzar and Tornado wind farms, both planned in the province of A Coruña, with a total of 123 MW.

Two projects, Orzar (56 MW) and Tornado (67.2 MW), will supply green energy to the facilities of the multinational Resonac in this province. Both projects will involve an investment of more than 100 million euros and the mobilization of more than 400 jobs.

All these wind farms have previously passed the corresponding Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), as they were considered compatible and respectful of the environment and incorporate the different preventive and corrective measures that guarantee their adaptation to the environment.
