Enel Green Power invested approximately 140 million US dollars in the construction of the wind farm.
Rome, March 11th, 2015 Enel Green Power (EGP) has completed and connected to the grid the Talinay Poniente wind farm in Chile.
The wind farm consists of 32 wind turbines, for a total installed capacity of 61 MW, and is able to generate over 160 GWh per year. This output is equivalent to the energy needs of about 60,000 Chilean households, and will therefore avoid the emission of over 130,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Enel Green Power invested approximately 140 million US dollars in the new wind farm, which contributes towards the growth targets set out in the companys business plan for 2014-2018.
The project is supported by contracts to supply energy to regulated-market customers. The contracts were awarded at the end of 2013 following a tender, carried out for Chiles Central Region Transmission Network (SIC) by a total of 26 distributors. The energy generated by the wind farm will be delivered to SICs transmission grid.
The wind farm is located in the Coquimbo region, across from the Talinay Oriente wind farm (90 MW), which has been operating since 2013.
