June 20 (Renewables Now) - The government of the Spanish region of Galicia has given the green light to the 24-MW Oleiron wind farm on its territory, the project developer Norvento Enerxia informed Wednesday.

According to the government resolution, Norvento will invest some EUR 20.6 million (USD 23m) in the project. The Oleiron wind farm will be equipped with eight Vestas V-112 turbines rated at 3 MW, with 119-metre towers.

The wind farm will be located in the areas of Rois and Brion in the province of A Coruna. The Galicia-based renewables developer and medium-scale wind turbines manufacturer is working on the project via its vehicle Norvento SL.

In 2016, the regional government declared the Oleiron wind farm project of public interest.
