Mainstream Renewable Power is seeking environmental permits to develop a $240 million wind farm in Chile’s southern Bio Bio region.
The Alena wind energy project will include as many as 43 Goldwind’s wind turbines with a total capacity of 107.5 megawatts, Dublin-based Mainstream said today in a filing with environmental licensing agency Servicio de Evaluacion Ambiental. The wind power project includes 21.4 kilometers (13.3 miles) of power lines and a substation.
Work on the wind farm is expected to start Nov. 30, according to the filing.
