Mainstream Renewable Power picked Vestas to equip a 185MW wind farm in Chile that was originally due to use machines from insolvent OEM Senvion.

The developer will use Vestas V117-4.2 MW turbines at the Cerro Tigre project that’s due to begin operating in 2021, said the Danish wind group.

Ireland-based Mainstream said in 2018 that Senvion turbines would be used at Cerro Tigre under a conditional deal signed before the OEM tipped into insolvency earlier this year.

Cerro Tigre is part of a 1.3GW wind and solar pipeline Mainstream is advancing in Chile in a joint venture with investment Chile group, following its success in 2016 power auctions.
