Mainstream Renewable Power has placed an order with Vestas for the 109 MW Ckani wind park to be located in Antofagasta, Chile.
The contract includes the supply and installation of 26 V150-4.2 MW wind turbines, as well as the Active Output Management 5000 (AOM 5000) service agreement for the operation and maintenance of the wind farm for the next 20 years.
The 109 MW Ckani project, which was awarded at the auction held in 2016, adds more than 1,5 GW of Vestas turbines already installed or under construction in the region.
“We are delighted to announce this second partnership with Vestas in Chile and to continue working with them on the delivery of our Chilean renewable energy platform, Andes Renovables.”Manuel Tagle, general manager for Mainstream Chile and LATAM.
“We are proud to be partnering with Mainstream Renewable Power once again in Chile, after working together on the 185 MW Cerro Tigre wind project. We are certain that the competitiveness of our V150-4.2 MW turbine and our service capabilities will make a great contribution to optimise our customer’s business case.”Andrés Gismondi, sales senior director for Vestas LATAM South Cone
The Ckani Wind Park is scheduled to be commercially operational in 2021.
