Senvion, a global manufacturer of wind turbines, has concluded a contract with global wind and solar company Mainstream Renewable Power for the supply and installation of 93 turbines for two wind farm projects in Chile totalling 300 MW. The contracts are currently still under conditions precedent. The Sarco and Aurora wind farms are owned by Aela Energia, the Joint Venture between Actis (60%) and Mainstream Renewable Power (40%). The turbines supplied by Senvion for these two projects will provide clean energy for around 196,000 households in total.
For project Sarco, Senvion will supply 50 Senvion 3.4M114 turbines with a hub height of 93 meters. The wind farm is located in the Atacama region of Northern Chile, around 530 kilometres north of Santiago de Chile. Every turbine has a rated output of 3.4 megawatt and will supply around 2,200 households with electricity. After its planned completion in spring 2017, the wind farm will have a total rated output of 170 MW and supply more than 110.000 households per year with electricity.
