Construction of Horizonte in TalTal (Chile)
Construction begins on the Horizonte wind project in Taltal, located in the Antofagasta region of Chile.
In October 2018, Barlovento Chile Limitada was awarded the contract to carry out the "Wind measurement campaign in Tal Tal" tendered by the Chilean Undersecretary of Energy, under the Ministry of Energy.
The campaign, which lasted one year, served to determine the wind potential of the area where the Horizonte wind farm, owned by Colbún, is now being built, and where 140 wind turbines will be installed with a total capacity of 778 MW, which will increase the wind capacity of the region by 70%. It is estimated that the works will last for 35 months and that the wind farm will be fully operational in 2024.
Barlovento has been working in Chile since 2012 where we offer engineering, consulting and testing services for solar and wind energy through its subsidiary Barlovento Chile Limitada.
