Spanish renewables developer Forestalia Renovables has firm plans to install 14 wind farms, each of 49.5 MW of capacity, across the region of Aragon, north-eastern Spain.
These plans were unveiled in the official state gazette by the Spanish government, which on Monday invited public consultation on the PEol-482-AC project, as the entire 693-MW initiative is named.
Forestalia, through a vehicle representing it, is seeking consent and the environmental licence to raise the 14 wind farms in Teruel and Zaragoza provinces. The sub-projects are named Taranis, Angus, Bodega, Brigid, Metis, Dian, Nazario, Fulgora, Belenus, Epona, Electra, Felis, Hefesto and Fontus, and each is budgeted somewhere between EUR 40 million (USD 47.5m) and EUR 47 million, according to the state gazette.
Forestalia is no stranger to large-scale renewables development, particularly in Aragon. The company was the first local partner of UK’s Lightsource BP when it arrived for a piece of Spanish solar in 2019.
