Enel Green Company (EGP), the renewable energy arm of Italy’s Enel, has connected its first wind farm in Chile to the grid.

Talinay wind farm has an installed capacity of 90 MW and will be able to generate up to 200m kWh annually once fully operational, according to Enel.

The wind farm, designed and developed by Danish company Vestas, is comprised of forty-five 2 MW wind turbines, also made by Vestas.

The construction of Talinay required a total investment in the region of $165m.

With the start-up of operations at Talinay, EGP has strengthened its presence in the Chilean renewable energy market by expanding its installed capacity to 182 MW.

It is also currently in the process of constructing a 90 MW wind farm in Valle de los Vientos, in region II of Antofagasta.

Once completed, this wind farm will increase EGP’s installed capacity in Chile to 272 MW.
