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 organization Sharenergy has set up The Small Wind Co-op, a community energy project using our nED100 wind turbines. Thanks to this kind of developments, the nearby communities can enjoy the benefits of the project, both financially and from an energy point of view. To secure full funding, a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for […][+]
Norvento has successfully completed ten new turbine installations throughout the UK in the first half of 2016, with another nine fully consented turbine sites awaiting installation in the second half of the year. These new installations illustrate the market recognition of the unique advantages of Norvento’s nED100 technology in a low-subsidy environment. (Read More) (Read […][+]
Norvento will participate in Livestock Event 2016, the leading B2B event for the UK livestock industry, taking place in Birmingham on 6th and 7th July. Come and visit us at stand DR510 and have a look at the new optimized version of our 100kW nED100 wind turbine, which has been designed to boost aerodynamics and […][+]
