Wind Energy – Canary Islands
Spanish renewables developer Capital Energy has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Maritime Cluster of the Canary Islands to promote development of 750MW offshore wind in the region.
Capital Energy announced that the MoU seeks to develop a joint plan that identifies supply chain services required to build the projects.
The MoU will run for five years and can be renewed.
The agreement follows meetings in November with representatives from companies in Gran Canaria and Tenerife, who make up the Maritime Cluster, including Femete, Atiren and Fedeport.
Capital Energy signed similar MoUs in the last quarter of 2021 with Canary Islands shipyards Zamakona Yards, Astican and Hidramar.
The developer added that these framework agreements show its commitment to local companies and building an autonomous community, which it said is strategic to meeting offshore wind energy goals.
