Capital Energy, the Spanish energy company aiming to become the first 100% vertically integrated renewable energy operator on the Iberian Peninsula, has requested the Ministry for Ecological Transition’s authorisation to carry out four major wind farms in Aragon, which together would have a total capacity of 504 megawatts: Céfiro, with 192 MW; Paucali, with 114 MW; Arlo, with 102 MW; and Argestes, with 96 MW. These projects, which are awaiting approval from the Ministry, would involve an investment of 330 million euros by Capital Energy.
According to a press release published by Capital Energy on its own website, the Ministry for Ecological Transition has published the authorisation applications for these four wind farms, capable of producing more than 1.5 million MWh per year, enough to supply clean energy to around 630,000 homes in Aragon, and which would avoid almost 600,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Moreover, the company says that the construction of these four wind farms would create as many as 2,900 jobs when the building work reaches its peak, with 100 professionals being employed long-term to carry out operation and maintenance tasks.
With these four projects, the energy company seeks to increase its participation in wind farm development in Aragon, where it already has 1.5 GW of installed capacity spread across more than 10 projects. In recent months, Capital Energy has made progress in the processing of the wind farms Biota and Muno (in the Cinco Villas county of Saragossa province), Diana and Vientos del Sur (in the Campo de Borja county of Saragossa province) and Las Mareas I and II (in the Bajo Cinca county, halfway between the provinces of Huesca and Saragossa). These projects have a combined total capacity of 580 MW.
The four farms have the following characteristics:
