Ventinveste, consortium led by Galp Energia, has announced that it is to create 1327 jobs by developing eight wind power parks and an industrial "cluster" consisting of 15 manufacturing units. The new facilities are expected to produce 130 generators and 267 assemblies of turbines. This business expansion stems from the implementation of a contract signed between the Ventinveste consortium and the General Directorate of Energy and Geology ( Direcção Geral de Energia e Geologia – DGEG). The project involves a total investment of EUR 636 million over six years. As of September 2007, there is no information on when employment at the sites will commence and when the new jobs will be created by.
