A new wind farm on Lanzarote is on the cards as arrangements for the installation in Arrecife move another step forward.

The project, which will be located in the area known as El Monte in San Bartolomé and will consist of four wind turbines.

President of the Water Consortium and INALSA, María Dolores Corujo and delegate in the Canary Islands of the company Elecnor SA, Miguel Ángel Moreno, signed the contract for the supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance project.

The project includes the installation of four Enercon E-70 model wind turbines of 2,300 kW of nominal power, forming a wind farm of 9.2 MW of total power.

The president affirmed that “it will be installed respecting to the maximum the pre-existing roads and the crops of the zone, harmonising its operation with the local agriculture.”

This Arrecife Wind Farm has a cost of more than 11 million euros. In November of this year, the process must be completed and the winning company has ten months to execute it.
