(Santiago/Oslo, 12. april 2021) Statkraft skal for første gang bygge vindkraftverk i Chile, og øker dermed sin produksjonskapasitet for fornybar energi i det søramerikanske landet, hvor etterspørselen etter vann-, vind- og solkraft er stigende. Sammen med selskapets eksisterende vannkraftportefølje i Chile, vil Statkraft nå en produksjonskapasitet på 366 megawatt (MW) innen utgangen av 2023. Det 102 MW store vindprosjektet Torsa består av tre vindparker, med til sammen 19 turbiner fra den tyske produsenten Nordex. Samlet forventes vindparkene å produsere mer enn 300 GWh med fornybar energi i året – nok til å forsyne 100.000 gjennomsnittlige chilenske hjem. Prosjektet ligger i O’Higgins-regionen, 124 kilometer sør for hovedstaden Santiago. - Disse tre vindparkene øker ikke bare vår produksjonskapasitet i Chile; de utvider vår fornybarportefølje til å for første gang omfatte vindkraft. Framover planlegger vi også å inkludere solkraft i produksjonsmiksen vår, sier Statkrafts konserndirekt
