In less than a year IBERINCO (Iberdrola Ingeniería y Construcción) has opened offices in the United Kingdom, the United States, Greece, and Poland, in keeping with its international expansion strategy.
With the new offices, the engineering arm of the Spanish utility major IBERDROLA is pursuing two objectives. The first to extend its capabilities for supporting the activities of its IBERDROLA parent abroad, and renewable energy facilities, and the second is to actively seek engineering and construction contracts from clients outside the group.
From its new offices in Birmingham, IBERINCO is overseeing the construction of a number of wind farms. The two that are already under construction are Clachan Flats I in Scotland, and Darracott, England, with an aggregate capacity of 15.03 MW. A third, Clachan Flats II, is now in the advanced engineering stage, and will bring another 2.55 MW on stream.
In the pipeline for future development are a number of wind farms, including a facility in Greenfields, which will bring an additional 300 MW of capacity. Studies of local wind, links to the grid, and environmental impact are already under way. Five wind measurement masts will be put in place this year.
IBERINCO, with offices in Philadelphia, is to build 40 weather stations throughout the country. It is also supplying engineering services for the Top of Iowa 2, Jordanville, Lempster, Crescent Ridge 2 and Locust Ridge 2 wind farms, and will give support during the construction stage.
From its new office in Athens, IBERINCO is at work on the Mammoth project, callings for the installation and interconnection of wind farms on the Greek islands of Lesbos, Lemnos, and Chios in the Aegean Sea.
In the next few months the company will erect 20 wind measurement masts in Turkey with a view to future wind energy projects.
The company has offices in Warsaw, and is about to hand over a turnkey 40.5 MW wind farm in Kisielice. Work is also well advanced on an 18 MW farm in Malbork.
IBERINCO’s project portfolio in Poland includes wind farms now in the engineering stage with a total capacity of 185 MW. Last month the firm began construction of a 69 MW facility in Karscino. Wind projects representing more than 300 MW are now under study.
