May 24 (Renewables Now) - Portuguese renewable energy company Greenvolt - Energias Renovaveis SA (ELI:GVOLT) has acquired a project to develop a 90-MW wind power plant in Iceland.

The transaction was carried out through the Portuguese firm’s subsidiary V-Ridium Power Group and marks its entry into the Icelandic market, Greenvolt said on Monday.

According to the Portuguese firm, this scheme is the first utility-scale wind project in the country and should help Iceland continue to meet all its energy needs with 100% renewable sources in the future.
