Cádiz, Spain (PortSEurope) October 4, 2021 – ABEI Energy has applied for a license to construct a floating wind energy facility in the waters of the Port of Cádiz. Abei Energy subsidiary Bahía de Plata Real State 2017, S.L., submitted the application. The proposed location is in the Port Authority’s Water Zone II, although the actual location was not specified. There have been similar past
submissions for such a project, but have been resisted by neighbourhood groups and environmentalists. The approval process will now start and the relevant government and local authorities will be consulted. It is a project that the port would like to see go ahead. Should this be the case, the port would expect to have a role in the transport and storage of infrastructure for the project as well as an ongoing role. According to company sources, ABEI Energy intends to build an offshore wind farm with 18 wind turbines in three rows and a capacity of 162 MW to generate clean, renewable electricity and feed it into the high voltage grid. ABEI Energy is an independent energy producer (IPP) that manages power generation projects renewable sources. The port is operated by Autoridad Portuaria de la Bahía de Cádiz (APBC – Port Authority of Cadiz). Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2021.
