Vestas, a prominent wind turbine manufacturer, has clinched a deal with Repsol for the STEV wind farm. This venture marks the advent of the V162-6.2 MW EnVentus turbines in Spain, promising to revolutionize the country’s wind energy landscape.
Repsol, a key player in the energy sector, has placed a substantial 31 MW order for the STEV wind farm, a part of the Delta II project situated in Aragon, Spain. The agreement encompasses the supply and installation of five V162-6.2 MW wind turbines, marking the commencement of a pioneering era in Spain’s wind power infrastructure.
“This collaboration with Vestas is pivotal in our pursuit of reaching 6 GW in operation by 2025,” states Jose Ignacio Breton, Repsol Low Carbon Generation’s Technology & Procurement director, underlining the strategic significance of this alliance.
Agustin Sanchez Tembleque, Vestas’ General Manager for Spain and Portugal, said: “Repsol’s confidence in our cutting-edge technology is commendable. The EnVentus platform, tailored to meet Spanish grid code requirements, embodies versatility that caters to our clients’ diverse needs.”
Anticipated to commence turbine delivery in the second quarter of 2024, the wind power project targets commissioning by the fourth quarter of the same year. Once operational, the wind farm is projected to generate sufficient clean energy to power 29,000 households in Spain annually, effectively curbing approximately 29,600 tons of CO2 emissions yearly.
This milestone builds upon Vestas’ rich history in Spain, where it has installed over 5.2 GW of wind energy in more than 140 wind parks since inaugurating its first turbine in 1991. As the world navigates towards sustainable energy solutions, collaborations like this one between Vestas and Repsol signify a resolute step forward in Spain’s renewable energy aspirations.
