Hand in hand with Navantia, the Aviles-based company Windar Renovables from the Daniel Alonso Group has just signed a 120-million euro contract for the construction of the foundations for a new offshore wind farm in England.
Aviles has returned to the offshore wind power industry scene with this opportunity to construct the foundations of a new wind farm in England. Specifically, the company Windar Renovables, from the Daniel Alonso Group, has recently signed a 120 million euro contract, along with Navantia, for the construction of the foundations of the future wind turbines that Iberdrola plans to install in the North Sea, in England.
This is not the first time that Asturias, and especially Aviles, has been at the forefront of international attention for this type of energy and offshore wind power facilities. The company Windar Renovables has recently supplied the pieces needed for the implementation of the Block Island Wind Farm project, the first offshore wind farm in the United States, which is set to generate 30 megawatts over this year. Specifically, and for this project, it has supplied five towers that hold six-megawatt turbines. Likewise, the Asturfeito Group has also participated in this initiative, making the most of its experience in oil and gas sectors to open up a market in the offshore wind power sector.
In the case of the future wind farm in England, the wind turbine plant will generate 714-megawatts of power, thus becoming the largest Spanish project in the renewable energies sector.
