March 21 (Renewables Now) - Argentina-based power company Pampa Energia SA (BCBA:PAMP) inaugurated on Wednesday the 53-MW Pampa Energia II wind farm, also known as PEPE II.
Located near the city of Bahia Blanca, Buenos Aires province, PEPE II is the company's second operational wind farm in the area. It required an investment of approximately USD 70 million (EUR 61.2m).
The park has 14 wind generators, manufactured in the country by Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS). PEPE II's output will be supplied to large electricity consumers through private power purchase agreements (PPAs), Pampa Energia said.
In addition to this wind park, the firm is also developing the 53-MW PEPE III project in the same region. With PEPE and the already commissioned Engineer Mario Cebreiro Wind Farm (PEMC), Pampa reaches 206 MW of renewable power capacity.
A special guest to the wind park inauguration was Prince Frederik of Denmark, the firm noted.
