Spain’s Sacyr SA (BME:SCYR) on Tuesday confirmed its industrial unit will be involved in the construction of 241 MW of onshore wind farms in Chile for Irish renewable energy company Mainstream Renewable Power.
The construction company will provide the balance of plant (BOP) solution for the 157-MW Tchamma and the 84-MW Alena wind projects, it said on Twitter.
Sacyr Industrial SL will build the foundations and other support structures for the wind farms, including all the electrical and civil works related to the evacuation of electricity. The company was quoted as saying by Spanish media outlets that the Alena wind farm will feature 18 turbines, while the Tchamma project will be populated with 35 machines.
The two wind farms form part of the first phase of Mainstream’s 1.3-GW Andes Renovables wind and solar power megaproject in Chile. The Irish firm recently announced it reached the financial close to launch the 571-MW Condor project, the first of three phases in the fully contracted Andes Renovables. It then unveiled the names of several contractors involved in its Condor projects, including Sacyr Industrial.
The wind farms are due to reach commercial operation in 2021.
