December 15 (Renewables Now) - Argentina-based power company Pampa Energia SA (BCBA:PAMP) said on Tuesday it plans to increase the capacity of its wind park in Coronel Rosales, Buenos Aires province, to 134.2 MW from 53.2 MW.

Named Pampa Energia III, the wind farm was inaugurated in 2019 and it currently features 14 turbines. The company will invest over USD 120 million (EUR 106m) in 18 additional wind turbines, which will add 81 MW of new capacity.

Local construction and project development company Sociedad Argentina de Construccion y Desarrollo Estrategico, better know as SACDE, is in charge of the expansion works required on the platforms and foundations, Pampa Energia pointed out.

The works are scheduled to start at the beginning of 2022, while commissioning is scheduled to take place in the second quarter of 2023.

In addition to Pampa Energia III, the company has two other operational wind farms for a combined installed capacity of 206 MW. With this expansion, the firm will reach 287 MW of wind energy.
