Iberdrola is accelerating investment in renewables and has started the New Year by breaking ground at the Mikronos wind farm, located in the province of Rhodopes in Thrace in northern Greece. With an installed capacity of 33.6 megawatts, the facility will comprise eight V150 wind turbines with 4.2 MW unit capacity, a hub height of 105 m and a rotor diameter of 150 m.
With commissioning expected for the middle of this year, Iberdrola's installed renewable capacity in Greece and Cyprus will stand at 335 MW.
In 2022, the company expects to commission three further wind projects, which will add a combined capacity of 100.4 MW, bringing the company's operating capacity in the country to 435.4 MW.
The additional projects are Askio II (33.6 MW), Askio III (50 MW) and Rokani (16.8 MW) wind farms, awarded to Iberdrola in last year's capacity auction.
