GE Renewable Energy has been selected as the technology provider for the 342-megawatt (MW) Phoenix onshore wind project in Aragon, Spain, the company announced Wednesday.
The project will feature 91 onshore wind turbines of GE's 3MW platform with a 130-meter rotor diameter and a hub height of 85 meters, according to GE's statement.
The project will be developed by Mirova, Engie and Forestalia and create 10 new wind parks, which are being financed by JP Morgan, Santander and Sabadell.
Installation of the turbines will commence immediately at the parks which derive from the renewable energy auction awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Energy in May 2017, and have been declared investments of regional interest by the government of Aragon, the statement added.
GE Renewable Energy will also provide a 20-year Full Service Agreement offering data-driven insights, expert recommendations, and local advanced field services through GE's services and monitoring sites across Spain.
