August 19 (Renewables Now) - Chilean utility Engie Energia Chile SA is planning to boost the capacity of its Vientos del Loa wind farm project to around 204.6 MW from the initial 126.5 MW.
The company said it has submitted the environmental impact statement (EIS) for the upgrade, seeking to install 33 units of 6.2-MW wind turbines in the commune of Calama, in Chile’s Antofagasta region.
The total investment in the proposed scale-up is estimated at around USD 246 million (EUR 206m).
Engie’s EIS for the 126.5-MW project has already been approved. The utility plans to adapt the new project to the same land and surfaces defined within the scope of the approved EIS, it said.
