Jul 18, 2014 - Chile's environmental authorities have this week published the plan for a 204.6-MW wind farm proposed by German wind power developer Wpd in the central Biobio region.
The Santa Fe wind farm will consist of 62 turbines of 3.3 MW that could produce 681 GWh a year for the SIC power network.
The plant will be built in Los Angeles municipality as of 2016, with an estimated investment of USD 400 million (EUR 296.3m). Its construction is expected to take 12 to 14 months.
The environmental committee for Biobio has recently approved another, 36-MW project which Wpd plans to develop near Negrete town.
