    IberBlue Wind to develop a 990 MW offshore wind farm between Cádiz and Málaga

    November 16, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      IberBlue Wind will develop a 990 MW offshore wind farm in Andalusia. The farm, named Nao Victoria, will occupy an area of 310 km2 in the Alboran Sea (the westernmost part of the Mediterranean Sea). It will be located off the coasts of Cadiz and Malaga, and will have 55 wind turbines.

      The implementation of this project will require an investment at market prices in the order of 2,000 million euros and close collaboration with the nearby ports of Cadiz and Malaga and will be an important pole of employment generation, as it will allow the creation of thousands of jobs. Of these, the vast majority will go to the development and construction phase of the wind farm, and the rest to the operation and maintenance of the wind turbines during the expected years of operation.

      IberBlue Wind has already submitted to the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge (MITECO) the Initial Project Document (DIP), which includes its technical characteristics. At the same time, it has initiated contacts with regional and local institutions, as well as with groups in the area, in order to gather all the contributions and provide the project with maximum transparency and integration in the territory.

      The Nao Victoria offshore wind farm will be located some 25-40 km from the coast, which will help to reduce the impact of the installation, which will be supported on floating platforms anchored to the seabed. This technology allows the wind turbines to be located at greater depths in the sea, which overcomes the difficulty posed by the narrow continental shelf of the Iberian Peninsula.
