Our second technology in terms of installed capacity
Hydropower has been part of ACCIONA Energy's activity since the Company's early days.
The Company has worked on upgrading and taking full advantage of the value of obsolete small hydro power stations, as well as constructing new plants. Our extensive experience in upgrading and construction covers not only the evaluation of the resource, but also the design, construction, operation and maintenance.
The incorporation of hydro assets acquired from Endesa in 2009 as part of ACCIONA's sale of its stake in the Spanish utility boosted our hydropower capacity. This technology now ranks second in our installed capacity after wind power, with 912 MW operational.
ACCIONA's hydroelectric power stations are controlled from our Renewables Control Center, located in Navarre, in close coordination with our different area centers, which makes for more efficient management of the facilities.
