After a strong 2012, Enel Green Power continues to grow in 2013, with new plants being put into service in Italy and Spain and the inauguration of Talinay, EGP’s first wind farm in Chile
The Talinay wind farm in the Coquimbo region of Chile is now online, becoming Enel Green Power’s first wind farm in the South American country.
The new plant, the construction of which required an investment of about $165million, has an installed capacity of 90 megawatts and can generate more than 200 million kilowatt-hours per year. ‘This is another step forward in our strategy for growth in Chile, which is a country with huge renewable energy potential,’ said Enel Green Power CEO Francesco Starace.
With Talinay now in service, EGP has strengthened its presence in the promising Chilean renewable energy market, increasing its installed capacity in the country to 182MW and about 4479MW worldwide, with plants online in Europe and North and Latin America.
Enel Green Power saw significant growth in its windpower sector in 2012, adding 770MW to its installed capacity since the end of 2011
