Sarco wind farm, located in Freirina in northern Chile has announced that all 50 of its turbines have been successfully installed on site. The project is developed and built by Mainstream Renewable Power and is owned by Aela Energía.
The wind turbines for the Sarco project have an individual capacity of 3.4MW, which together amounts to a total installed capacity of 170MW. German turbine providers, Senvion, supplied and installed the turbines, whose metal towers are 93 metres in height and reach 149 metres including blade length. A 73 km transmission line, with a 220kV circuit, is also being built as part of the project, which will transport the energy produced from the wind farm to the Maitencillo substation, from where the energy will be injected into the National Electrical System (SEN). A total of US$ 240 million has been invested in this project.
