The Basque Country has developed a strong industrial framework in the wind power sector thanks to the driver effect of leading international companies such as Iberdrola and Gamesa, playing a prominent role in  technological and market development (with over 22 GW installed in Spain since the outset in the mid 1990s as a pioneering country at an international level)

The maritime sector in the Basque Country figures highly in the economic and industrial development of the Basque Country. Furthermore, the maritime sector in Euskadi is a world benchmark thanks to its knowhow in the construction of high technology vessels and manufacture of equipment and products of high added value.
The sea serves as a natural habitat for local companies and their experience  in sectors such as oil and gas makes them necessary players for the development of offshore wind power, as they are able to offer solutions both in the design process and the construction of the wind farm and its equipment both during operation and maintenance and its subsequent disassembly;

  • Installation and maintenance vessels
  • Foundations (fixed and floating)
  • Manufacture and integration of electrical substations
  • Other elements (cranes, elevators, interiors, anchoring devices, towers, transition pieces)
