GE Renewable Energy, Enerfín to jointly construct first 50 MW wind farm project in Spain

Enerfín, Spain based wind energy company has started the construction of the 50 MW wind farm in Confrentes, Valencia (Spain), which will be powered by 13 of GE Renewable Energy’s onshore wind turbines. The turbines will be produced at GE’s Renewable Energy site in Salzbergen, Germany; while the blades will be manufactured by GE’s LM Wind Power in Spain.

The project is the first between the two companies and marks the return of wind energy to the Valencian Community after an eight-year hiatus.

The Paris-headquartered division of General Electric,will also provide a 25-year full service agreement offering data-driven insights, expert recommendations, and advanced field services, all sourced locally via its service site in Noblejas and the new Remote Operations Centre (ROC) in Barcelona.

The Noblejas site, where the drivetrains of the Cofrentes turbines will eventually go for service, is one of the few sites in Spain with the scope to service machines of up to 4MW from a variety of manufactures. In addition, GE Renewable Energy’s ROC in Barcelona, is expected to add to its radar Enerfín’s turbines once they are commissioned by 2020.
