Enerfín, the wind energy focussed arm of Spain’s leading infrastructure and renewable energy group Elecnor has announced the start of the construction on the 50 MW Cofrentes wind farm in Valencia, which will be powered by 13 of GE Renewable Energy’s onshore wind turbines.

The project is the first between the two companies and marks the return of wind energy to the Valencian Community after an eight-year hiatus.

The project will be powered by 13 of GE’s 3.8-137 onshore wind turbines, with a hub height of 111.5m, ideally suited to take advantage of the wind conditions in the mountainous range of La Muela de Cortes. The turbines will be produced at GE’s Renewable Energy site in Salzbergen, Germany; while the blades will be manufactured by GE’s LM Wind Power in Spain.

GE Renewable Energy will also provide a 25-year Full-Service Agreement offering data-driven insights, expert recommendations, and advanced field services, all sourced locally thanks to GE Renewable Energy‘s Service site in Noblejas and the new Remote Operations Center (ROC) in Barcelona.

Peter Wells, Onshore Wind CEO for Europe and SSA at GE Renewable Energy, said, “We are very excited to be working with Enerfín in our first project together and to be able to do so on a project that highlights our commitment to the Spanish wind market, while offering the full range of local capabilities, expertise and unique solutions we have in Spain.”

Recently, we reported that GE Capital’s Global Capital Advisory business, a unit of GE, has reached the financial close of €90 million for DTEK Renewables’ 200 MW wind farm project, Primorskaya Wind Electric Plant (Primorsk).

Earlier, Vestas Wind Systems A/S and GE Renewable Energy have reached an amicable settlement of all disputes related to multiple patent infringement claims in the U.S. The settlement will result in the discontinuation of the case pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California as well as all other pending proceedings related to the patents-in-suit.
