February 8 (Renewables Now) - Spanish multi-energy group Repsol SA (BME:REP) said that it has produced first power from a group of turbines installed as part of its 175-MW PI wind farm cluster in the Castile and Leon region of Spain.
The cluster will have seven wind farms once the project is finalised. The turbines at one them, the La Serna wind farm, are grid-connected and producing electricity on a trial basis, Repsol said.
Once the complex reaches commercial operation, PI will produce 596 GWh of electricity per year.
The group also provided the update on its 860-MW Delta II cluster, which will be made up of 26 wind farms installed in the Spanish region of Aragon. It said that four of them, totalling 160 MW, are already up and running.
Repsol still has to obtain relevant permits to start construction of a group of 18 wind farms with a combined capacity of 571 MW within the Delta II cluster.
The company also said that it had secured environmental approval for over 600 MW of projects that are part of its 2022 and early 2023 pipeline.
At present, Repsol has 1,842 MW of installed renewables capacity in Spain, Portugal, Chile and the US. The Spanish portfolio accounts for 1,600 MW of that.
