Spain’s Gamesa Completes Its First Wind Farm in Chile

MADRID – Spanish turbine maker Gamesa said Wednesday it completed the construction of its first wind farm in Chile, a facility with 36 MW of installed generating capacity.

The wind farm is located on an island in southern Chile, Gamesa said in a statement, adding that the contract calls for it to operate and maintain the facility for 12 years.

The San Pedro Chiloe wind farm is a turnkey project completed for Transantartic, Gamesa said.

The contract covered construction of all infrastructure, including 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) of roads, a substation, a 25-kilometer (nearly 16-mile) transmission line and a bridge, Gamesa said.

The San Pedro Chiloe wind farm opens the way into “a market that has great potential for wind development,” Gamesa said.

Chile plans to expand its wind-power generation capacity from 413 MW in 2013 to 1,500 MW by 2018, the Spanish company said.

Gamesa has more than 1,900 MW of generating capacity in Mexico, Honduras, Argentina and Costa Rica.

Latin America accounted for 49 percent of Gamesa’s revenues in 2013.
