Nordex to star in Spanish remake
Ageing 30MW El Cabrito wind farm to get 12 new replacement turbines
Nordex has won a 30MW turbine order from Acciona Energia as part of a renovation of El Cabrito, one of Spain's oldest wind farms.
The existing 30MW project, located on a mountain range near Tarifa in southern Spain, was built around 25 years ago and consists of 90 older wind turbines.
They will be replaced by 12 new machines, including eight N100/3000 turbines and four AW70/1500 turbines.
Construction work will be carried out in the second half of 2018.
"With a capacity that is up to ten times greater, the twelve new turbines will produce an increased energy yield despite having the same nominal capacity, whilst simultaneously lowering the operating costs," Nordex said.
