The fully-operational “Acampo Hospital” wind farm, located in the province of Zaragoza, will generate over 19 million kWh a year
Enel Green Power España has connected to the grid the new Acampo Hospital wind farm in the province of Zaragoza (Aragon). With a 5.4 MW installed capacity, the fully-operational facility will generate over 19 million kWh annually.
The clean energy produced by the three 1.8 MW turbines at Acampo Hospital will avoid annual atmospheric emissions of over 14 thousand tons of CO2, saving around 7 thousand tons of oil equivalent (TOE).
The wind farm was envisaged within the framework of International Expo Zaragoza 2008, an event which focused on water and the sustainable use of this resource. Several facilities, including the Acampo wind farm, were designed in order to reach the event’s objective of 100% sustainability. Acampo Hospital was then purchased by Enel Green Power España as a part of a public tender and subsequently developed by the Company.
The new wind farm – one of the last plants scheduled in the Pre registro, in line with the Company’s business plan - adds further renewable capacity to the 275 MW Enel Green Power already operates in the autonomous community of Aragon and the total of 1,828 MW it operates in Spain and Portugal.
Enel Green Power operates in Spain and Portugal through Enel Green Power España (EGPE), of which Enel Green Power holds 60% and Endesa 40% of the capital.
