Jul 3, 2014 - Spanish engineering consultancy Solute said Wednesday it will assist Argentine NRG Patagonia in the development of a 1.5-MW wind turbine in Argentina's southern Chubut province.
The turbine, with tower height of 80 m (262.5 ft), will be designed for average wind speeds of 7-8 m per second approximately. It will be installed at the 77-MW Rawson wind farm of local firm Genneia.
Solute, in collaboration with NRG Patagonia and the National University of Patagonia San Juan Bosco, will perform design, calculation, verification and preparations for international certification.
Argentina's National Agency of Scientific and Technological Promotion has awarded NGR Patagonia a grant of ARS 24 million (USD 2.9m/EUR 2.2m), equal to half of the project value.
(ARS 1 = USD 0.123 /EUR 0.090)
