The co-investor in the wind farm is the Elecnor Group, whose core business entails infrastructure projects including the construction and operation of wind farms.

The Barbers wind farm will be built in the Spanish province of Tarragona in Catalonia on a mountain ridge close to the coast at an altitude of around 400 m. The nominal annual yield of the 12 wind turbines is estimated to 88 GWh.

Eolia Renovables has already commenced the preparatory civil works. Nordex will be installing the first wind turbines in April, with the wind farm to go on grid in summer 2012.
