The Herrera Complex, which will be built in Burgos province, is made up of three wind farms – La Huesa, Valdesantos and Orbaneja, and will have an installed capacity of 63MW, distributed between a total of 14 wind turbines. Forecasts indicate that the project will be operational later in 2020.

Iberdrola will also build the 10MW-capacity Fuenteblanca wind farm in its vicinity, which will consist of 3 SG 3.4-132 wind turbines, to complete a 73MW wind farm complex.

With the Herrera wind complex, Iberdrola is progressing with its renewables investment plan in Spain, where the company plans to install 3,000 new wind and photovoltaic MW. By 2030, company forecasts point to the installation of 10,000 new MW.
