Rome/Madrid, 13 February 2004. Enel Union Fenosa Renovables today launched two new wind farms in Galicia, in Spains North West. The plants will produce enough energy to supply 40,000 families and required an investment of 50 million euro.
The inauguration follows the formation in December of EUFER by Enel SpA and Union Fenosa, a move which consolidates Enels world leadership in renewable energy and confirms Union Fenosas commitment to environmentally friendly energy production.
Wholly owned by EUFER, the two wind farms have a total installed capacity 50.7 MW and are located in Sierra de Pena Forcada and Cabo do Vilan.
Enel owns 80% of EUFER which consists entirely of plants and projects for the production of energy from renewable sources, predominantly wind and hydro. It includes 381 MW of installed capacity already in operation (counting the two new wind farms), 98 MW under construction, around 330 MW planned for the next four years (2004-2007) and around 880 MW of long term projects (2008-2012).
