Project Development & Execution

17 Jan | ACCIONA completely renovated wind farm service Spain

  • El Cabrito, located at Tarifa (Cadiz), goes from ninety 330-kW wind turbines installed in 1995 to twelve 3-MW and 1.5-MW machines of Nordex technology
  • The installation will produce 16% more clean energy with the same capacity (30 MW) as the obsolete wind farm
  • The renewal has reduced its environmental impact, as well as its visual and noise profile, and makes it easier for birdlife to fly through.
