The main goals of the project are the following:
– Create the planning of the Alto Ebro´s riverbank (Navarra, Spain) subarea. Through this methodology, a general proposal to alternative locations inside the study zone of a winery with its corresponding installations will be created, taking into account the possibilities and restrictions of the natural environment to guarantee the conservation of nature and the effective execution of human activities ( Martinez, 2004).
– Choose the best location to implement a winery with its wine cellar inside the study area.
– Create an electrical outline proposal to supply the project installations…”
