The wind turbines are scheduled for delivery in mid-2014, and the facility is slated for commissioning towards the end of 2014. The project is still under development, and the decision to proceed is contingent on local government approval. Gamesa noted in a release, however, that Iberdrola is well-positioned to use the 202 MW of turbines at other possible U.S. sites.
The Baffin wind power project is the last phase of Iberdrola’s Peñascal complex, which will have a total capacity of 606 MW when commissioned.
Gamesa has installed 1,880 MW of wind turbines for Iberdrola in the U.S., and 9,000 MW of wind power capacity for Iberdrola worldwide.
