Spanish renewable power retailer and project developer Capital Energy on Wednesday announced a plan to build two wind parks with a combined capacity of 60 MW in the region of Andalusia, southern Spain.
Located in the province of Seville, the proposed Pinarejo I and II wind projects will require a combined investment of EUR 63 million (USD 61.6m).
The 36-MW Pinarejo I wind park will consist of seven turbines which are expected to generate some 85,000 MWh per year. This will be enough to meet the demand of over 32,000 local homes.
With four machines, the 24-MW Penarejo II wind farm will be capable of producing around 60,000 MWh of power annually which is equal to the consumption of 23,000 households, the company said.
The construction of the two wind farms is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2023.
Capital Energy noted that it has signed an agreement with the city council of La Puebla de Cazalla about the wind projects.
In addition, Capital Energy has also committed to undertake several actions tailored to the needs of La Puebla de Cazalla, such as the improvement of infrastructure and services and the protection of artistic and cultural heritage, among others.
