    August 11, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The company Infinita Energia plans to invest about 33 million euros in a wind farm in the municipality of Pombal, district of Leiria, said this Wednesday to Lusa the promotion director, Carina Brás.

      "This amount of 33 million euros is the direct investment in the construction of the park," said Carina Brás.

      According to the promotion director, "as soon as the production license is granted, the company estimates a period of 18 months to have the park built and ready to operate."

      In a press release issued on Tuesday, Pombal City Hall said it had approved in a meeting of the executive "the issuing of a location opinion for the installation of a Wind Power Generating Centre to be installed in a total area of 787 hectares, covering the parishes of Abiul, Vila Cã and the Union of Parishes of Santiago and São Simão de Litém and Albergaria dos Doze".

      The wind farm will have an installed capacity of 33 megawatts (MW), with six wind turbines plus a spare of 5.5 MW nominal power each on a 150-meter tower and a 158-meter rotor.

      The construction of a substation with about 400 square meters of implantation, to store the energy produced by the wind turbines, is also contemplated.

      According to the press release, "the project is framed in the planning options contained in the Pombal Municipal Master Plan, without prejudice to the due compliance with the other applicable rules and regulations, and will contribute to the achievement of the goals outlined in the National Plan for Energy and Climate 2030, promoting the production of electricity from a renewable source.

      In addition to the deliberation of the municipal executive, "also the respective parish councils issued a positive opinion to the location of the project", explained the municipality led by Pedro Pimpão, noting that the process is intended "to the instruction of the request for allocation of production license to be submitted to the Directorate General of Energy and Geology, by the promoter".

      Infinita Energia, based in Santarém, is part of the Spanish group Capital Energy and "has a portfolio of wind projects under development throughout the country that currently total about two gigawatts," added Carina Brás.
