Spanish wind energy producer Greenalia has brought online the first of five wind-energy parks it expects to build this year in Galicia, part of the first-phase rollout of the company’s ambitious EOLO program to develop ad operate nine wind-energy facilities in northern Spain by 2023.

The Miñón wind-energy park, located in Vimianzo n Galicia’s A Coruña province, was developed at a cost of 23 million euros and employs the six largest wind turbines currently installed in Spain, capable of generating 4 MW of electricity each for a total production capacity of 24 MW.

In addition to the Miñón park, Greenalia says it expects to begin generating electricity by end-March from a 26-million-euro wind-energy park it is building in Ourol, in the province of Lugo. Construction of three additional facilities — Alto de Croa, Alto de Croa II and Monte Tourado — are expected to be completed and operational by September.
