Envision wins largest wind contract in Argentina's first renewable energy auction

Published 13 October 2016

Envision Energy plans to install its 2.5MW wind turbine generators at four wind farms totaling 185MW in Argentina.

The company won the largest wind energy contract in Argentina's first renewable energy auction, RenovAR.

Envision said it will also deploy its Wind OS energy management software solution at the unnamed projects.

Each of the wind farms are anticipated to reach commercial operation in the first quarter of 2019.

The auction received a total of 123 bids of which 17 were successful with 12 allocated to wind, four solar and one biogas.

Other international and local bidders like Genneia, Central Puerto, Pan American Energy, EREN have also been awarded several projects.

Argentina President Macri has made renewable energy one of his main priorities in order to diversify the country's energy matrix.

He has introduced new regulatory policies and energy auctions like RenovAR to attract foreign direct investment into the country and to support renewable energy development.

Envision Latin America & the Caribbean director Rafael Valdez Mingramm said: "We are proud to achieve positive results in Argentina's first auction as we demonstrate Envision's full commitment to the Latin American market, beyond Mexico and Chile, by introducing right technologies and solutions to drive down cost of energy."
