Spain – Repsol has started construction of Delta II, the company’s largest renewable project to date.
Once completed, it will have a total capacity of 860 MW distributed over 26 wind farms located in the region of Aragon in northeastern Spain.
First phase of construction started
In the first construction stage, Repsol has started work on two wind farms, La Cometa I and La Cometa II. These two wind farms, with a combined capacity of 60 MW, are scheduled to come into operation in the first quarter of 2022. They will have four and 12 wind turbines, respectively. Repsol also plans to begin work on three other wind farms in this large wind project this year.
Delta II is expected to be completed in 2023 and, at that time, it will supply electricity to around 800,000 homes. The renewable electricity generated will avoid the emission of more than 2.6 million tons of CO2 per year. Its development and start-up will provide a significant boost to the socio-economic dynamism of the region.
In addition to Delta II, Repsol has the Delta wind project in Spain, also in Aragon, which has been fully operational since last March and has 89 wind turbines with an installed capacity of 335 MW distributed among eight wind farms. Construction of the Pi wind project, located between Palencia and Valladolid, with a total installed capacity of 175 MW, is expected to start this year.
