Elawan Energy places 50 MW order for wind projects in Spain

By Editor


Renewable power company Elawan Energy, a subsidiary of Orix, has placed a significant order for wind projects in Spain.

Vestas said the 50 MW contract includes the supply and installation of several advanced wind turbines. Specifically, the order encompasses five V162-6.2 MW wind turbines and three V162-6.2 MW wind turbines configured to operate in 6.4 MW power mode. This deal also includes a 25-year Active Output Maintenance 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.

Elawan Energy, headquartered in Spain, is a global player in renewable energy with operations in 14 countries across Europe, North and South America. The company boasts over 1,290 megawatts (gross) of operational capacity and approximately 7.3 gigawatts (gross) of projects either under construction or in development.

“This order also showcases the suitability of our EnVentus platform for the Spanish market. Its flexible power rating and full-converter technology provide our customers with the reliability they need to develop new wind projects in the country,” said Jose Luis del Cerro, Vestas General Manager Spain.

The delivery of the turbines is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2025, with commissioning expected in the second and third quarters of the same year. Upon commissioning, these wind projects will collectively prevent approximately 24,100 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually, which is equivalent to removing 16,200 European passenger cars from the road each year.

Vestas has a strong presence in Spain, having installed over 5.3 GW of wind energy across more than 140 wind parks since its first turbine installation in 1991.
