The company has successfully completed the connection to the grid of the first wind turbines at the Delta wind project in Aragon, Spain.
ENERGIA LIMPIA XXI. Repsol, as part of its commitment to an efficient and sustainable energy transition, has reached a new milestone and started to generate wind power with the connection to the grid of the first wind turbines at Delta, one of its two major wind projects located in the northern Spanish region of Aragon.
Delta is made up of eight wind farms, located in the Zaragoza and Teruel provinces, with a total of 89 wind turbines and 335 megawatts (MW) of installed power. A report carried by Energía Lipmia XXI magazine statest that the construction and commissioning of this facility, which is already supplying the grid with its first megawatt hours of 100% renewable energy, was completed in less than 12 months and has required an investment of 300 million euros. It is expected that this project, which will initially operate on a trial basis, will enter into commercial operation at the end of the year, according to the projected timetable.
Delta will produce 992 GWh of clean energy per year, the equivalent of the average annual consumption of 300,000 households, avoiding the emission into the atmosphere of one million tons of CO2 per year.
On December 2, last year, Repsol announced that it was orienting its strategy towards becoming a company with net-zero emissions by 2050 in accordance with the Paris Agreement, making it the first company in its sector to adopt this ambitious target.
