Nordex to supply 18 turbines to Mainstream wind project in Chile

Mainstream Renewable Power Ltd. has ordered 18 turbines from Nordex SE for its 86-MW Alena wind farm, part of its 1.3-GW Andes Renovables wind and solar generation platform in Chile.

In November, Mainstream raised $580 million in debt to finance the construction of the first phase of Andes Renovables, a $1.7 billion, three-phase project that will consist of seven wind farms and three solar facilities.

"When fully operational [Andes Renovables] will generate enough carbon-free electricity to supply more than one in every six Chilean homes and will play an important role in helping to reduce the cost of electricity generation in the country," Manuel Tagle, general manager for Latin America at Mainstream, said in a Dec. 12 news release.

For Alena, Nordex will supply 18 of its N149 turbines in a 4.8-MW operating mode, with installation to start in autumn 2020. Following completion at the beginning of 2021, the wind farm will provide more than 270 GWh of clean electricity per year.

Mainstream also signed a service contract with Nordex for a period of 15 years, with an option to extend it for another five years.
