The Control Center of Gestamp Wind has been accredited by “Red Eléctrica Española”
(Madrid, June 14, 2012) Gestamp Wind has taken a strategic decision in the renewable energy sector worldwide with the construction of a Control Center that will allow us to manage and optimize the production in every installation.
CCER is the Control Center of the renewable energies that Gestamp Renewables manages. It works non-stop 24/7, every day of the year. It has real time access to the status of every installation and they can be remotely operated.
CCER has been accredited by the operator of the Spanish Electrical System “Red Eléctrica de España” as a control center in the feed in tariff’s system.
By the end of 2012, we expect to be managing 376 MW from our own wind facilities. We can provide services to external clients who need a control center that complies with every regulation and who wish to increase the availability of their plants. From now on, Gestamp Renewables will have more autonomy and control of its installations.
According to Dionisio Fernandez Auray “Today, we manage in the CCER a total of 376 MW worldwide from which 138 MW are directly connected with “Red Eléctrica de España”. He concluded “By the end of 2012 the CCER will be managing a total of 450 MW”.
