Abengoa starts commissioning tests of the Campo Palomas wind farm in Uruguay



March 23, 2017

Abengoa (MCE: ABG/P:SM), the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors, has started commissioning tests of wind turbines  at the Campo Palomas wind farm in the Salto district, in Uruguay. This project has required an investment of $145 M, and once in operation, will supply 70 MW to the national power grid.  

On February 21, and as part of the tests that will lead to the commissioning of the farm, wind turbine number 19 started supplying electricity to the grid. The farm has a total of 35 wind turbines - each one producing 2 MW, as well as a substation and a control center.

Furthermore, the company has completed works with regard to two transformer substations in the Artilleros wind farm, for Suzlon Wind Energy Uruguay, in the Colonia district, located in the southeast of the country.

At the same time, Abengoa is performing the groundwork for the 150 kV high voltage line for Isotrón Uruguay, as part of the Colonia wind farm, located in the south of the country, in the Florida district.

These projects help to consolidate Abengoa's position as a leading company in Uruguay's wind sector, a country where it has been present for more than 35 years, and where it has completed other similar projects such as: the Peralta wind farm (Tacuarembó district) and Talas del Maciel II (Flores).
