Spanish companies Capital Energy and BlueFloat Energy have join forces in Tenerife to develop the Granadilla offshore wind farm, the first in Spanish port waters. It will be located near the Tenerife port that gives its name to the project, will require an investment of more than €120 million and will have an installed capacity of 50 MW derived from five 10 MW turbines on gravity-based concrete foundations developed by the engineering company Esteyco. The bulk of the energy generated by this asset will be used for self-consumption by the port facilities and its concessionaires, within the framework of the Port Authority of Tenerife's commitment to the decarbonisation of its operations. The project also has a strong R&D component, notably due to employing a new gravity-based foundation design.
The project has already commenced application for the administrative concession of the area of water in the port area from the Tenerife Port Authority, having completed the tender process and moved into the comments phase, which will be analysed in detail. At the same time, BlueFloat Energy and Capital Energy have conducted presentations for the various local stakeholders with the aim of maximising transparency and territorial integration. The
next step will be to start the characterisation of the offshore wind farm through environmental campaigns and the related Environmental Impact Assessment.
