GE Renewable Energy To Supply 342 Megawatt Phoenix Wind Project In Aragón, Spain

GE Renewable Energy announced this week that it has been selected to supply wind turbines to the 342 megawatt (MW) Phoenix project, which will develop 10 new wind parks in Aragón, Spain.

GE Renewable Energy announced this week that it has been selected to supply wind turbines to the 342 megawatt (MW) Phoenix project, which will develop 10 new wind parks in Aragón, Spain.

A day after the company announced the first commercial order for its flagship Cypress turbine platform, GE Renewable Energy announced that it would continue to power wind development in the Aragón region of Spain, having been awarded the supply contract for the 342 MW Phoenix project being developed by Mirova, ENGIE, and Forestalia. The Phoenix project will develop 10 new wind parks across the Aragón region using 91 of GE Renewable Energy’s 3 MW turbine platform.

The company’s 3 MW turbine platform is ideally suited to the wind conditions native to the Aragón region and will measure in with rotor diameter of 130 meters and hub heights of 85 meters. The turbines will be manufactured at the company’s Salzbergen factory in Germany, while the manufacturing of blades will be carried out at its LM Wind Power European facilities.

“Phoenix marks the continuation of the great work we have done with Forestalia in Goya,” said Peter Wells, Onshore Wind CEO for Europe and SSA at GE Renewable Energy. “We are excited for this significant milestone that validates the reemergence of wind energy in the Spain. We will continue building on our local experience to keep powering Aragon and Spain with clean energy.”

GE Renewable Energy will also provide a 20-year Full Service Agreement for the Phoenix project. Installation is expected to commence immediately at the 10 wind parks. ENGIE expects the Phoenix project to create over 800 jobs during construction and around 50 permanent jobs once they are up and operational. The projects will, collectively, generate around 1,000 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of clean electricity annually.

“With Phoenix Project, ENGIE Spain is taking an important step to achieve a clear positioning in key projects and markets, such as the renewable energy sector thanks to innovative management models offering a global and sustainable solution tailored to each client,” said Paulo Almirante, ENGIE Executive Vice-President and Group Chief Operating Officer. “This initiative, together with GOYA, perfectly illustrates ENGIE’s strategy to invest in sophisticated projects.”

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
