March 24, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Endesa Cogeneracion y Renovables, the wholly owned subsidiary of Endesa (Spain), announced that it will build up five new wind farms, which will be located in Tarifa, and will be comprised by 98 Series 800kW aerogenerators. Construction is expected to begin during the second half of 2003, and the start of operation will begin during the first quarter of 2004.

The total estimated investment for the construction of the wind farms will amount to €70 million. The infrastructure will connect the wind farms with the 400kV network of Red Electrica. The estimated output will be approximately 190GWh per annum, which implies an annual savings for the domestic economy in terms of fuel imports of more than the equivalent to 16,000 tons of oil.
