Spanish group Greenalia SA (BME:GRN) announced on Monday that it has been cleared to commence construction of the 40.5-MW Campelo wind farm in the province of A Coruna, northwest Spain.
The project, located between the municipalities of Coristanco and Santa Comba, will require an investment of EUR 40 million (USD 45m).
Greenalia said it obtained the construction permit and a declaration that the project is in the public interest.
Campelo will be equipped with nine 4.5-MW wind turbines, with 112 metres in hub height and 136 metres in rotor diameter, down from 11 units that were originally planned.
The number of turbines was reduced during the permitting process in response to comments and concerns about potential impacts, the company said.
The construction of the Campelo wind farm is due to commence and wrap up in 2022 after 11 months of works.
