Iberdrola Commissions El Pradillo Wind Farm
Iberdrola is moving forward with its process to lead the energy transition with the launch of a new renewable project, the El Pradillo wind farm 23 MW, located between the Zaragoza towns of Frescano, Borja and Agón, in Aragón. Comprising 6 SG 3.4-132 wind turbines, with 3.4 MW power units, and 1 SG 2.1-114 wind turbine, rated at 2.1 MW, its construction has had an important stimulating effect on the local industrial fabric, since a good number of the elements in the wind turbines have been manufactured in Spain, in facilities in Zaragoza, Soria, Burgos, Navarra, Cantabria and Asturias.
The construction of the El Pradillo wind farm has also generated local employment, as it involved 75 workers. The project, undertaken jointly with Caja Rural de Navarra, has involved the investment of 26 million euros.
The energy generated by El Pradillo is sufficient to supply 10,500 homes per year -almost one third the entire population of the city of Teruel- and will avoid the emission of 17,300 tons of CO2/year.
