Goldwind to supply 82-MW wind farm of Pacific Hydro in Chile

Punta Sierra preliminary works

November 21 (SeeNews) - China's Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology (HKG:2208) will supply the turbines for a 82-MW wind project of Pacific Hydro in Chile.

The Australian renewable energy company, which in January this year was acquired by China's State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC), said today it has signed a contract with Goldwind. Under the deal, the Chinese wind turbine maker will deliver 32 machines of 2.5 MW each for Pacific Hydro's first wind farm in Chile.

The USD-150-million (EUR-141m) project is called Punta Sierra and is located in Ovalle, in the region of Coquimbo. It will feed power into Chile's Interconnected Central System (SIC).

Preliminary works are already underway at the wind farm site. The turbines are due to arrive at the port of Coquimbo in the middle of next year.
