Repsol Ibereolica completes 165 MW wind farm in Huasco, Chile

Repsol Ibereolica Renovables Chile, a Repsol and Ibereólica Renovables Group joint venture, has completed the 165.3MW Atacama wind farm in Huasco, Chile. The facility has the ability to produce 450 GWh of renewable energy annually, which is sufficient to power more than 150,000 Chilean households while displacing 320,000 tonnes of carbon emissions. It is outfitted with 29 Nordex N163 wind turbines, which have already begun to feed the grid with their first megawatt-hours of fully renewable energy. The Atacama wind farm also has a 14-year power purchase agreement (PPA) in place with Repsol and the Ibereólica Renovables Group.

The second project that Repsol and the Ibereólica Renovables Group have jointly developed is the Atacama wind farm. The 192.5 MW Cabo Leones III wind farm, which is also situated in Huasco’s Atacama region, was earlier created by the companies. More than 1.2 GW of capacity is now operational, under construction, or in advanced stages of development at Repsol and the Ibereólica Renovables Group. Repsol aims to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and has a renewable energy installed portfolio of more than 1.8 GW.

In February 2023, Repsol started producing clean energy at PI, its first renewable project in Castilla y León. The PI project, which is situated in the provinces of Palencia and Valladolid, consists of seven wind farms with a total installed capacity of 175 MW. It would be able to produce 596 GWh of renewable energy annually, which is enough to supply the needs of 170,900 households on average.
