Gamesa Completes Building 36-Megawatt Wind Farm in Chile

Aug. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Gamesa Corp. Tecnologica SA, Spain’s biggest wind turbine maker, completed building a 36-megawatt wind farm in southern Chile.

The San Pedro Chiloe project for Chilean developer Trans Antartic Energia SA has 18 G90 2-megawatt wind turbines, Gamesa said today in a statement. Construction began in January 2013, including more than 20 kilometers (12 miles) of roads, a 25-kilometer transmission line, a bridge and an electrical substation, Zamudio-based Gamesa said.

Gamesa is expanding its presence in Latin America, which accounted for 36 percent of revenue in the first half of 2014. Chile had 425 megawatts of installed wind power capacity at the end of 2013, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The London-based analyst forecasts it’ll double that this year and surpass 2 gigawatts of installed capacity in 2018.

Gamesa will provide 12 years of operations and maintenance services to the new wind farm, the company said without providing terms.
