The Azimut project, a Spanish initiative aimed at developing a 15 MW wind turbine by 2020, has completed its applied research activities undertaken during the last four years.

The EUR 30.3 million project brought together 11 Spanish companies, coordinated by Gamesa, which include Acciona Windpower, Alstom Wind, Acciona Energia, Iberdrola Renovables, Ingeteam, Imatia, Ingeciber, Digsilent Iberica, Tecnicas Reunidas, and Tecnitest.

Gamesa says that upon the project's completion in December 2013, the different companies have obtained important results in key areas - including new technologies, testing processes and models, and a new Web application - to help with the development of a 15 MW machine.
