Iberdrola SA (IBE.MC) said Friday that it had asked for authorization from the Spanish energy ministry to close two thermal plants in Spain, with a combined capacity of 874 megawatts.
The dismantling process will last four years from the approval date and will require an investment of around 35 million euros ($40.7 million), Iberdrola said.
The company also said it would relocate the 170 workers who currently work at the plants in Asturias and Palencia.
