Wind turbine manufacturer Acciona Energia has been awarded the first Prize for its wind power solutions in Poland by the Green Phoenix Foundation for the Development of Ecoenergy, reports Renewable Energy Magazine.
The company owns and operates two 68 MW wind farms in Poland.
The prize was awarded during the Eco Power Generation Industry Gala held on 9th October.
Acciona Energy Poland Managing Director Andrzej Konarowski received the award on behalf of the company.
The award was an inspiration to company and a motivation that all its projects and the energy of all employees of ACCIONA may turn to green energy for all of us, stated Konarowski during the acceptance speech.
Its recent priority is Krobia I Wind Farm, an eleven 3 MW wind turbine project, each of them with a rotor diameter of 116 meters and a rotation area equivalent to 1.5 football pitches.
The wind turbines are installed on 120-meter concrete towers manufactured on-site, which was the first such wind farm in the world when the production commenced one year ago.
