December 10 (Renewables Now) - Vestas Wind System A/S (CPH:VWS) has booked an order from Ireland-based Mainstream Renewable Power to supply 185 MW of turbines for the Cerro Tigre onshore wind project in Chile.
The order comprises the supply and installation of 44 units of the V117-4.2 MW turbines and a 20-year service agreement for operations and maintenance (O&M) of the wind farm.
The Danish manufacturer said Tuesday it is scheduled to deliver the turbines in the third quarter of 2020.
The Cerro Tigre project has obtained the necessary environmental and grid connection permits and will expectedly reach commercial operation in 2021.
The 185-MW wind farm will be located in Chile’s Antofagasta region. The project is part of Mainstream’s first phase of the 1.3-GW Andes Renovables wind and solar power fully-contracted portfolio in Chile.
The 571-MW first phase, dubbed Condor, consists of one solar photovoltaic (PV) and two other wind projects, besides Cerro Tigre.
