Spain is about to get a lot of wind power backup soon after it reportedly launched its first offshore Wind Turbine which will surely aid a lot of local townfolks over there.
The said wind turbine was installed at a dike via the Arinaga port, a tall 505-feet tall turbine that comes equipped with 205-foot-long blades. The said turbine is expected to aid in the annual power needs of the area where about 7,500 homes should benefit from it.
Currently, Spain is ranked number four internationally in terms of installed wind energy capacity. Unfortunately, the country’s renewable energy sector has seen a barrage of severe cutbacks recently due to an ongoing financial crisis.
Spain is expected to gain certification sometime in March, 2014 after which the it would be connected to their electric grids.
