    May 24 (Renewables Now) - Spanish utility Endesa SA (BME:ELE) announced on Tuesday that it has connected its largest wind farm in Spain, the 180-MW Tico Wind, to the grid.

    The project was carried out by Endesa’s renewables division Enel Green Power Espana.

    The EUR-181-million (USD 193.8m) wind farm is located in a town in the Spanish region of Aragon. Construction started in May 2021.

    Now online, Tico Wind will generate around 471 GWh of electricity per year. Part of that output will go to Swiss multinational pharmaceutical company Novartis AG (SWX:NOVN), which signed a ten-year virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with Enel Green Power back in 2020.

    Novartis secured a supply from a 78.5-MW portion of Tico Wind, Endesa now reveals.

    In the last three years, Enel Green Power Espana connected 19 wind farms in the Aragon region, adding 685 MW of installed capacity and investing some EUR 680 million, the utility added.
