    AES Dominicana acquires 50 MW Agua Clara I wind farm from Inkia Energy

    June 20, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The operation was carried out through a sale and purchase agreement with the Inkia Group, a company dedicated to the development of high-tech renewable energy projects. This step is part of AES Dominicana's sustainability strategy in its commitment to decarbonization, as these 50MW reduce CO2 emissions by some 124,000 metric tons per year.

      In the words of Edwin De los Santos, president of AES Dominicana, "these projects are of paramount importance because they reaffirm the Dominican Republic as the fastest growing country in the region in non-conventional renewable energy sources and, therefore, the one with the greatest capacity to attract investment that seeks to chain all its productivity in a more sustainable way".

      With this operation, the company reaches 150 megawatts of renewable energy

      "These investments are the initial step in the growth strategy of renewable energy in development where AES plans to reach 790MW in the coming years," added De los Santos.

      Willem Van Twembeke, CEO of Inkia Energy, highlighted the good wind resource of the Agua Clara I wind farm and the technology it employs: "The world-class wind resource in a privileged location, coupled with the technology provided by Siemens-Gamesa at Agua Clara I, guarantees high reliability, with an availability of approximately 97% of the installed capacity.

      The first phase of the Agua Clara Wind Farm, inaugurated three years ago, contributes 50 MW to the National Interconnected Electric System (SENI) and was built by Inkia with an investment of more than US$103 million. The facility consists of 25 Siemens-Gamesa generators of 2MW each and is capable of supplying energy to more than 250,000 Dominicans.

      Inkia Energy is an international company focused on the electric power sector, specifically generation and distribution. The company operates in Argentina, Peru, Chile, El Salvador, Bolivia, Nicaragua, and Guatemala. In Peru, it is the largest power generator, while in Guatemala, its electricity distribution company Energuate serves more than 2.2 million customers.
