Vestas has secured an order for a wind project with a capacity of 50 MW in the northwestern region of Spain from Sinia Renovables, the renewable power and climate transition asset arm of Banc Sabadell. The agreement pertains to the supply of 11 V136-4.5 MW wind turbines, along with a 25-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM 4000) service agreement.
“It is critical for Sinia to work with trusted partners in our effort to keep deepening the decarbonisation of the Spanish economy. Sinia is proud to deepen our long-standing partnership with Vestas and acknowledges the crucial contribution Vestas has brought to our project”, said Xavier Gàsquez, Managing Director at Sinia Renovables.
“We would like to thank Sinia Renovables for their trust in Vestas’ technology and in our unmatched service experience. We are also excited to see how the diversity of our wind turbine portfolio continues to meet the different needs of our customers and increases our contribution to Spain’s energy transition”, says Agustín Sánchez Tembleque, Vestas General Manager for Spain and Portugal.
The turbine delivery is scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2024. Once operational, the project is projected to prevent approximately 44,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually, equivalent to removing 30,000 European passenger cars from the road each year.
The project will leverage Vestas’ service and manufacturing presence in Spain, where the company maintains 19 service centers and produces blades at its facility in Daimiel, Ciudad Real. Vestas’ history in Spain dates back to 1991, and it has successfully installed over 5.1 GW of wind energy across 130 wind parks in the country.
