NORVENTO since 1981
we integrate all the activities related to the production of renewable energy: development, engineering, technology, construction and exploitation
WHO WE ARE
Norvento Enerxía is a group of companies devoted to the promotion, construction and operation of power plants that use renewable energy sources. Norvento is owned by the Fernández Castro family and has been active in the energy sector since 1981, originating from an engineering and electrical services consultancy, specifically in the areas of renewable energy generation and distribution.
Norvento’s team is made up of highly technical professionals allocated to the key areas of our activity: Energy, Engineering and Technology.
Energy: this area vertically integrates all the operations necessary to promote, develop and operate renewable energy installations: wind farms, hydro, solar and biomass plants.
Engineering: this area comprises all the engineering services necessary to design and implement any renewable energy installation together with O&M. Furthermore, Norvento Control Centre, approved by Red Eléctrica de España (the National Power Grid operator in Spain), controls over 150 installations.
Technology: the area that includes all the R&D projects and technologies developed by Norvento such as medium-scale wind turbines and ocean renewable energy devices.
Thanks to more than 30 years’ history, Norvento has proven experience promoting, designing, constructing and the operation and maintenance of energy engineering and renewable energy projects
Currently, we own and operate: hydro, wind, biomass and solar energy installations. These projects have been designed and implemented to the highest technical standards and epitomize the performance of their respective technologies.
In 2014, Norvento’s generation capacity totalled 386,371 MWh and avoided the emission of 231,823 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Norvento has a constant and total commitment to renewable energies, allocating significant resources to the development of R&D projects. Similarly, Norvento has started to develop other technologies related to ocean energy and in 2011 the first prototype of our medium-scale wind turbine, nED100, was installed in Vilalba, Lugo, Spain. Nowadays, nED wind turbines are commercially available not only in Spain but throughout international markets, such as in UK where several installations already benefit from our nED100.
Recently, the Group has embarked upon an ambitious strategic international expansion plan and is present in countries such as: the USA, Brazil, Chile, Poland, Italy and the UK. The Group’s main focus is the promotion and construction of renewable energy installations and the deployment and marketing of medium-scale wind turbines.
The Small Wind Co-op, a crowdfunded community scheme, has reached –and surpassed- its minimum fundraising target. The milestone ensures that construction can now commence at the first of two planned farm-scale wind sites in Scotland and Wales. The Co-op has purchased two of Norvento’s nED100 100kW wind turbines, which are now set to be installed […][+]
Norvento nED Factory was awarded a subsidy by the Galician Institute for Economic Promotion (IGAPE) to carry out external promotion actions. The subsidy forms part of the programme Galicia Exporta Empresas 2016 (Galicia Exports Companies 2016), also financed by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the programme FEDER Galicia 2014-2020. The subsidy will […][+]
Sharenergy has already raised 70% of the necessary funds to install two nED100 wind turbines. Money is being raised through an online campaign, open to investors worldwide with a minimum investment of £100 and with a payback depending on the energy generated. The campaign is available until 22nd August. More information in Crowdfunder.co.uk[+]
