Senvion SA signed a conditional agreement with Ireland-based Mainstream Renewable Power Ltd. to supply 340 MW of turbines for two wind farms in Chile.
The German turbine manufacturer will deliver 44 turbines for the Cerro Tigre project and 37 turbines for the Tchamma project. The order includes a 20-year full service contract with an extension option, according to a news release.
The wind projects comprise the first of three phases of Mainstream's 1,300 MW of wind and solar portfolio, which was awarded to the company in the Chilean energy auction in August 2016. "The signing is a solid step towards reaching financial close for the projects early in 2019 and we are firmly on track to deliver them into commercial operation in 2021," Mainstream Renewable Power General Manager Manuel Tagle.
