Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex has been awarded a contract for the assembly and installation of the “Barbers” 30 MW wind farm, comprising twelve N90/2500 wind turbine systems. The contract is based on a framework agreement entered into with power station operator Eolia Renovables, which originally provided for a capacity of 150 megawatts. The co-investor is the Elecnor Group, whose core business entails infrastructure projects including the construction and operation of wind farms.
The “Barbers” project will be built in the Spanish province of Tarragona in Catalonia on a mountain ridge close to the coast at an altitude of around 400 metres. The nominal annual yield of the twelve multi-megawatt turbines will come to 88 gigawatt/hours at this location.
Eolia Renovables has already commenced the preparatory civil works. Nordex will be installing the first turbines in April, with the wind farm to go on grid in summer 2012.
