The company will invest around US$180m in the new wind farm, which marks ACCIONA Energía’s first step in the Peruvian renewable generation market. The construction phase will begin in April 2022. The wind farm is expected to be operational by the end of 2023.

The wind farm will have 23 wind turbines, each with a planned capacity of 5.7MW, that will produce 608 GWh, enough to meet the energy needs of 478,000 households. From an environmental point of view, the San Juan de Marcona wind farm will reduce CO2 emissions by 275,000 tonnes a year.

“We are very excited by our first project in Peru. Our goal is to become a key player in the Peruvian market as well as an enabler in the country’s clean energy transition. We aim to do that through the development of 100% renewable projects that contribute to the reduction of the use of fossil fuels” said José Ignacio Escobar, CEO of ACCIONA Energía South America.
