Mainstream starts foundation work for 157.5-MW wind park in Chile

Ireland-based Mainstream Renewable Power (Mainstream) has commenced work on the foundations for its 157.5 MW Tchamma wind park in Chile. The wind park is expected to generate enough electricity to meet the consumption of 186,937 Chilean homes and be able to avoid 177,996 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year. Tchamma is part of the 571-MW Condor portfolio, with the 86-MW Alena and the 185-MW Cerro Tigre wind parks, currently being constructed in nearby region of Biobio.
