Electric utility group Engie Energia Chile has filed a proposal for an up to 194.4-MW wind farm seeking environmental approval to build it in central Chile.
The planned Pemuco wind project is a USD-230-million development located in the namesake commune in the region of Nuble, the company said in its filing for an environmental review.
Construction, involving the installation of 27 wind turbines, is scheduled to start in May 2024.
The plan for a new renewable energy facility comes not long after Engie disconnected a 32-year-old coal-fired unit at its Tocopilla power plant in Chile to make way for new wind and solar. More recently, the utility was granted environmental approval to build a 300-MW solar farm with a 180-MW battery storage system in the north of the country.
