Punta Palmeras wind farm
On the coast of Coquimbo in Chile, the force of the wind pushes us towards a better future.
By collaborating with the Punta Palmeras wind farm, we help to keep the blades of its 15 wind turbines turning. The facility, opened in 2014 by Chile’s then President Michelle Bachelet, is home to the country’s most powerful wind turbines installed to date.
On 92-metre-high steel towers, these 3 MW wind turbines prevent the emission of 60,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere each year.
At full capacity, the wind farm generates a total of 124 GWh per year, enough to supply 60,000 Chilean households with clean electricity. To produce the same energy, a coal-fired power plant would emit 119,000 tonnes of CO2 or 215,000 barrels of oil would be needed.
So, we continue on our journey in Chile and wherever the road takes us, working to create a better future.
