German renewable energy startup Energy Kitchen is developing two wind projects in Chile. The two wind projects will total to a capacity of 33.6 MW, media reports said.
The company has chosen sites with high wind potential. It is estimated that each wind farm will be capable of generating an average of 45 GWh annually after operations commence. The 16.8 MW projects are called Purranque 1 and Villa Alegre 1.
Each of them will comprise three interconnected wind turbines with a capacity of up to 5.6 MW, media reports said. Another German renewable firm Nordex has announced a wind turbine order of 83 MW for a project in Brazil.
It appears that Nordex will use concrete towers produced at its local factory in Areia Branca, in Rio Grande do Norte. The wind complex will have a total of 74 turbines. During the first three phases, the company has supplied 50 AW132 turbines.
Even Enel is expanding its renewable energy platforms in Chile and the US by commissioning three new wind farms. Antonio Cammisecra, CEO of Enel Green Power, said in a statement, “This commitment has also been underscored by the completion of over 400 MW of renewable plants worldwide in the first quarter of the year, allowing renewables to greatly exceed conventional generation in our portfolio both in terms of capacity and production. While prioritizing health and safety, looking ahead we will continue generating new sustainable value through our emission-free energy across the globe, in accordance with the Group’s Strategic Plan.”
