January 30 (Renewables Now) - Iberdrola SA (BME:IBE) said today it has commissioned the 23-MW El Pradillo wind farm in the Spanish region of Aragon.
The Spanish power utility has developed the project in collaboration with Navarre-based credit unit Caja Rural de Navarra, with the total investment reaching EUR 26 million (USD 28.7m).
El Pradillo stretches across three municipalities in Zaragoza province. The wind farm is composed of seven Siemens Gamesa turbines - six 3.4-MW units and one 2.1-MW machine. Iberdrola said a “good amount” of wind turbine components had been manufactured in Spain.
The El Pradillo wind farm is expected to generate enough electricity to power up some 10,500 households each year.
Iberdrola operates 344 MW of wind and hydropower in Aragon.
