Vestas has secured an order from CyL Energía Eolica to supply wind turbines for a 42MW Zarzuela power project to be installed in Burgos, in the north of Spain.


As part of the order, Vestas will oversee civil and electrical works of the project, and will supply, install and commission 22 units of the V90-2.0/1.8MW turbine with a 105m hub height.

The contract also includes a VestasOnline Business SCADA system, a condition monitoring system, as well as a 12-year service agreement including the Active Output Management package AOM4000.

Delivery of the turbines is scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter of this year, and the wind project is expected to be completed in the second quarter of next year.

The Zarzuela wind facility has a total estimated production of 153,000MWh per year, which corresponds to an annual emission saving of 59,670 tons of CO2 emissions.

Furthermore, it will provide enough electricity to cover the residential electricity consumption of about 95,900 people in Spain.

CyL Energía Eolica belongs to VAPAT, a local company in Castilla Leon in Spain engaged in wind energy projects.
