Spanish forestry and energy group Greenalia SA (BME:GRN) said on Wednesday that it plans to build a 50-MW wind farm in the home region of Galicia, Spain.
The announcement was made as Greenalia's project proposal entered the public consultation stage.
The company will invest over EUR 37 million (USD 39.7m) to build the Rodicio wind farm. The project is located in the municipalities of Maceda and Montederrano, Ourense province.
Rodicio is designed to feature 12 wind turbines with a 4.2-MW capacity, 107 metres in hub height and 150 metres in rotor diameter.
Once in operation, the wind park is expected to be able to generate more than 144,128 MWh per year, enough to power some 41,000 families, according to the company.
