Spanish company Naturgy Energy Group SA (BME:NTGY) announced on Wednesday it has put into operation a 4.7-MW wind farm in the Canary Islands.
Located in the municipality of La Oliva, the Fuerteventura Renovable II wind farm was completed at a total cost of EUR 5.5 million (USD 6.26m), the company said.
The plant is estimated to have an annual generation of 14 GWh, enough to meet the demand of 4,000 homes. This mean that the wind park is capable of offsetting around 11,000 tonnes of pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions annually as well as 280,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) throughout its life.
In addition to this plant, the firm has a 40.7-MW wind power complex in the Canary Islands. With over EUR-63-million in investments, the Aguimes wind farm is located on the island of Gran Canaria.
Naturgy has 1,147 MW of installed renewable energy capacity in Spain, of which 979 MW comes from wind, 110 MW from mini hydropower plants (HPPs) and 58 MW from cogeneration and PV, it noted.
