January 29 (Renewables Now) - Elecnor SA (BME:ENO) said Wednesday it will be in charge of the construction of the 9.2-MW Arrecife wind farm on Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean.

The Spanish infrastructure builder and renewable energy group has been awarded a turnkey contract worth EUR 11 million (USD 12.1m) by Sociedad Insular de Aguas de Lanzarote SA (INALSA), an enterprise affiliated with local government-owned water utility Consorcio del Agua de Lanzarote.

The scope of the contract covers the supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance of four Enercon E-70 wind turbines, as well as construction of the accompanying civil infrastructure. Elecnor said the construction phase will be over in August 2020.

The Arrecife wind farm will be located in the middle of the Lanzarote island in an area called El Monte.

The project is one of several clean energy and sustainability initiatives that Consorcio del Agua is developing on the island with the co-financing support from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and in collaboration with the Spanish government agency, the Institute for Diversification and Saving of Energy (IDAE), according to Elecnor.
