Spanish renewable power retailer and developer Capital Energy has received the environmental impact statement for a 24-MW wind power project in the region of Navarre, northern Spain.
The construction of the Joluga wind farm, as it is named, will require over EUR 20 million (USD 19.5m) in investments, Capital Energy announced on Thursday.
The wind park with be equipped with five 4.8-MW turbines. Once operational, Joluga should be capable of generating around 60,000 MWh per year, or enough to meet the consumption of almost 25,000 Navarre homes.
Capital Energy said that the wind park is now awaiting the preliminary administrative authorisation and the construction permit. The retailer has also already signed collaboration agreements with the towns where Joluga and its evacuation infrastructure will be located.
In addition to the above-mentioned wind park, the company is working on another wind project in Navarre, the 85-MW Los Corrales scheme.
