Elecnor has been awarded the construction of a new wind farm in Chile backed by Mainstream Renewable Power. Located 50 kilometres from the city of Antofagasta, in a desert and relatively flat area, with heights of between 660 and 800 metres, the Cerro Tigre wind farm will have a total capacity of 185MW.
Elecnor will be responsible for the full execution of the Balance of Plant (BOP), which includes the installation of 44 72 metre-high turbines of 4.2MW each. In addition, the group will build a new substation, a 220 kV transmission line, over 20 kilometres of track, and the rest of the auxiliary civilian infrastructure. The contract also includes the expansion of another existing substation by building a 12 kilometre-long 220 kV transmission line. The works are scheduled for completion in 2021.
