The first phase with 79 MW and 22 SG 132 wind turbines, entered into commercial operation in December 2020. It will produce 280 GWh of clean energy per year, thereby avoiding 94,000 tpy of CO2 emissions. The second phase broke ground in July 2020 and is slated to enter into commercial operation in Q2, 2021.
The Repsol and Grupo Ibereolica Renovables joint venture has a portfolio of assets in operation, construction, and advanced development of more than 1,600 MW, with commercial operation dates up until 2023, and the possibility of surpassing 2,600 MW by 2030.
Repsol currently has nearly 3,000 MW of low-emissions generation capacity installed. It has six renewables projects under development in Spain and holds a stake in one of the world's largest semi-submersible floating wind farms, Windfloat Atlantic, off the coast of Portugal, which is now in operation.
Grupo Ibereolica Renovables currently operates 12 wind farms with an installed capacity of 205 MW in Spain and 444 MW in Chile. Additionally, it has approximately 10 GW of wind and solar projects under development in Spain, Chile, Peru, and Brazil. (Source: Grupo Ibereolica Renovables, Repsol Joint PR, 15 Jan., 2021)
