January 30 (Renewables Now) – Mainstream Renewable Power has signed a third conditional contract with Senvion SA (ETR:SEN), ordering 20 turbines totalling 84 MW for its Alena wind project in Chile, the Irish company said Wednesday.
The latest contract brings the total conditional order to 424 MW with Senvion committing to deliver, install and commission the wind turbines. In addition, the two companies also signed a 20-year service contract with the possibility of an extension.
The installation of the Senvion 4.2M148 turbines is planned to take place in 2020.
The 84-MW Alena wind project, located in the Biobio Region, is part of a 1.3-GW fully contracted wind and solar platform awarded to Mainstream in Chile’s energy auction in August 2016.
Last December, Senvion signed two conditional deals to supply 37 turbines for Mainstream’s 155-MW Tchamma wind project and 44 units for the 185-MW Cerro Tigre wind park, both located in the Antofagasta region in the northern part of Chile.
