Iberdrola, World’s Largest Wind Power Producer, Selects STM® for Communication to Wind Farms

STM Group, Inc. (STM) announced that its subsidiary in Madrid, Spain, has entered into a long term contract for supply of its VSAT products and services to NEO-SKY (IBERDROLA’s telecom operator) for IBERDROLA’s network, the world’s top wind energy producer and one of the largest utilities internationally.

IBERDROLA, the largest energy company in Spain, has experienced phenomenal growth within the past decade as it has expanded its activities throughout the world. With unprecedented investments within the last two years in renewable energy, NEO-SKY selected STM as its technology partner for providing the means of having reliable communications to wind farm sites and wind turbines that require remote surveillance, control, and monitoring in order to protect its investments and maximize the return.

The solution package, engineered by STM’s team in Spain, will be deployed by IBERDROLA at wind and solar farms, as well as at transmission stations. Each site is equipped with an IP-based SatLink VSAT that provides remote video surveillance, monitoring, and control, particularly useful in case of emergencies or when backup power is needed.

IBERDROLA is being provided with virtual network operation (VNO) control using the hubs and teleports owned and operated by STM. Mr. Jesus Barber, Regional Vice President of STM Group and General Manager of STM Spain, said, “We create value in engineering customized solutions for our customers, whether they have fixed or mobile operation on land or at sea.
