Spain’s first offshore wind turbine was commissioned the morning of the 25th, announced Gamesa, who began installation of the tower in mid-April.

The turbine, with a rotor diameter of 128 meters and a total height of 154 meters, will generate enough energy to power 7,500 households a year, also represent’s Gamesa’s first offshore prototype.

Installed at the Arinaga Quay in Gran Canaria (Canary Islands), the turbine is expected to be certified in the coming months.

Gamesa is proud of their new prototype, describing the turbine as having a “modular and redundant design, which ensures reliability and maximises energy output, optimizing the cost of energy.” The prototype tower was manufactured by Windar (a joint venture between Gamesa and Daniel Alonso) while the nacelle was manufactured at the Tauste factory.

The announcement was made via the Gamesa website on Thursday.
