    March 23, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The first wind turbine of Wayra Extension, Enel Green Power Peru's wind power project, is already installed in Marcona. This is the largest wind turbine in Peru, Latin America and the third largest in the world.

      This is the first of 30 wind turbines that the plant will have, each with an installed power of 5.9 MW, which together will achieve a power of 177 MW. They have a total height of 182 meters, of which 76 meters correspond to the length of the blades.

      "After the blade transfer works, having the first wind turbine of the Wayra Extension wind power plant already installed is a new milestone in the generation of renewable energies for our country. We continue with the objective of completing the project and adding green energy sources for all of Peru," said Eugenio Calderón, Head of Enel Green Power Peru.
