    Engie secures enviro nod for 353-MW wind project in Chile

    December 7, 2021 - SeeNews Renewables


      December 7 (Renewables Now) - The Chilean arm of French electric utility group Engie SA (EPA:ENGI) on Monday announced that its roughly 353.4-MW wind project in Chile received approval from the Antofagasta region’s environmental agency.

      Named Lomas de Taltal, the scheme will feature 57 wind turbines of up to 6.2 MW of unit capacity.

      The project will also see Engie Chile build a 20-kilometre (12.4 miles) 220-kV transmission line to connect the wind farm to the future Parinas substation and to the grid, the power company said.

      Engie expects to start construction in 2022 and finalise the project in the second half of 2024.

      The Lomas de Taltal project is part of Engie's plan to develop an energy hub in the commune of Taltal, a plan that gained more muscle earlier this year when the company secured government concessions to develop renewables in the area. Engie wants to use that land for wind-solar-battery hybrid projects totalling some 1,500 MW.

      In April this year, Engie announced its commitment to end its coal-based power operations and develop 2,000 MW of renewable projects in Chile.
