Spanish renewables developer Greenalia said on Wednesday that it has an 18-MW wind farm project in the works in the region of Galicia, northwestern Spain.
The company expects to invest over EUR 14 million (USD 14m) in the effort.
The wind farm, named Cabanelas, will have four 90-metre high turbines capable of generating some 61.5 GWh per year. The machines will be installed in an area where there is mostly forest and scrub vegetation but outside of Galicia’s protected zones and the Natura 2000 network, Greenalia said.
Plans for the project and the environmental impact study are currently in the stage of public consultation. According to Greenalia, the documents also include a proposal for the Cabanelas expansion, which would also be sited outside of protected natural spaces.
