Abengoa will construct the $165m
plant in Palomas, in Uruguay’s Salto Department.
The Spanish group said it will handle
EPC for the wind farm and then run the plant under a 20-year agreement with UTE
that Abengoa said will generate $500m in revenues over its lifetime.
Abengoa itself expects to contribute
$6m in equity to the project, which will deliver power to about 100,000
The Palomas development will use 35 2MW
wind turbines, said Abengoa. It does not specify a turbine supplier, but has
chosen those from Spanish compatriot Gamesa for a previous wind project in
Work at Palomas will start in early
2014 and is due to take about 14 months, Abengoa said
Abengoa already has PPAs with UTE for
two 50MW wind farms in Uruguay.
