The Service of Environmental Assessment has approved Mainstream’s 264MW Cerro Tigre wind farm located close to the town of Antofagasta in the north of Chile.
The project, which consists of 80 wind turbines in an area of 1,131 hectares, will involve an investment of approximately US$ 630 million and will be connected to the northern grid. This year Mainstream will also start the construction of two wind farms in Chile which have a combined generation capacity of 300MW; the Sarco wind farm which is located in Atacama, and the Aurora wind farm, located in the region of Los Lagos. Both wind farms will provide electricity to the Central Interconnected System.
