Gonzalo Casaravilla, UTE’s President, visited the facilities of the one-of-a-kind infrastructure in Uruguay. The plant is already producing segments for the wind turbine model that will be installed in Peralta I-II wind farm, the E-92.
With an extension of approximately 2.800 Hectares, the Peralta GCEE Wind Project consists of two wind farms, Peralta I – II. Fifty ENERCON E-92 wind turbines will be installed, with a total output of 100MW.
The Peralta GCEE Wind Farm will be located in Tacuarembó, the largest Department of Uruguay, well-known for its unmistakably beautiful natural landscape of low hills and cattle land.
All components arrived in December to the port of Montevideo from Natal (Brazil). The transport of the components to the site has been done meeting specific logistic requisites.
Once the production starts working at full capacity, it will produce about two towers per week and it will employ approximately 150 people among workers, technicians and administrative personnel.
