    Galerazamba wind power project: proposal for new connection

    March 16, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      he company EGAL, responsible for the India Catalina Wind Farm project, which is planned to be built in the jurisdiction of the village of Galerazamba (Santa Catalina, north of Bolívar), to which the Mining and Energy Planning Unit (UPME) recently denied the connection authorization, has presented an alternative to advance in this initiative. (Read here: Request for connection of wind project in Galerazamba denied).

      El Universal learned the text of a letter that EGAL's legal representative, Iván Martínez Ibarra, sent to the director of the UPME, Carlos Adrián Correa Flórez, in which he makes two specific requests: "We need to obtain the connection authorization that was denied... for which Egal has filed an appeal; and two, we must connect our project to the 500 kW line that goes from the Sabanalarga substation -in Atlántico- to the Bolívar substation -in Santa Rosa de Lima-".

      300 megawatts would be the energy provided by the India Catalina Wind Farm project, in Galerazamba, promoted by the company EGAL.

      The promoters of this initiative point out that if these requests are approved, the project, which would provide 300 megawatts, would have a high probability of being put into service ahead of schedule.

      EGAL's proposal coincides with recent statements made by the Minister of Mines and Energy, Irene Vélez, who expressed her concern about how "tight" the country is to cover its energy needs and avoid an eventual blackout by 2027. EGAL insists on the need for the UPME to "prioritize large wind projects in areas of very high resource, outside of La Guajira, to avoid future blackouts".
