ABO Wind to first install 4 MW in Argentina's Anelo - report
German wind projects developer ABO Wind will initially install two 2-MW turbines in Argentina's Anelo municipality to supply the local community, Vanesa Revelli, CEO for Argentina and Uruguay, has told energy news site Energia Estrategica.
This is the beginning of a total 100 MW in two wind plants the company wants to develop in the area for the national system.
In the last three years, the company spent USD 500,000 (EUR 445,000) on wind, technical and environmental studies. It is now waiting for the environmental licence to negotiate a contract for the wholesale market and wants to extend the two-year period approved by the Neuquen province for construction of the wind park due to a delay.
Revelli also said that a planned substation of Neuquen's power utility allows ABO Wind to operate the first two turbines without investing in expensive transmission facilities.
