Haizea Wind opens at Bilbao

Haizea Wind has inaugurated its EUR60 million (USD70.28 million) wind turbine tower and offshore foundation manufacturing facility at the port of Bilbao, Spain.


 

The port said that the state-of-the-art plant, which spans some 77,000 sq m, is one of the largest facilities of its kind in Europe.

Located at the AZ-2 quay in the Zierbena area of the port, the facility has direct access to a 21 m-deep berth without dimensional restrictions along the route.

The facility itself will be able to manufacture 300 wind tower sections, measuring up to 50 m-long, each year. It will also manufacture other large parts used in offshore wind farms, such as monopiles and transition pieces.

The construction of the facility was carried out by a joint venture of Construcciones Intxausti, Byco (Inbisa Construcción) and Gaimaz Infraestructuras y Servicios.
