Owner: OCHS SpA, owned by TIKUNA SpA (100%)
Design with a 6 MW wind turbine.
Land: Agreed rental with land owner.
“EL CRUCE” & “OCHS” PROJECTS:
Consists of execution, under the EPC format, 2 similar wind farms with an installed capacity of 3 MW each produced by 1 wind turbine. These farms, 15 km apart, will be located near Puerto Octay town, in Los Lagos Region, Chile. Both projects will generate electrical energy, using non-conventional renewable resources, taking advantage of the wind potential of the sector, diversifying the country's energy matrix and becoming a sustainable alternative. These wind farms will be connected to the Central Interconnected System of Chile (SIC), under the Small Medium Distributed Generation (PMGD) format.
Characteristics of the Primary Resource
The preliminary evaluation of the wind resource was obtained from the Wind Explorer of the Ministry of Energy. The long-term reconstructed basic statistic of wind speed at 67 m high, shows an annual average wind speed of 6.33 m / sec (with a monthly average minimum of 3.77 m / sec in the month of March and a monthly average maximum of 8.78 m / sec in the month of June).
In October 2017 COENER built a measuring station 70 meters high in the Fundo La Gruta, Cuatro Esquinas sector, in the commune of Puerto Octay. In May 2018, a first report shows results at 71 m of a semi-annual average wind speed of 5.71 m / sec.
According to modeling carried out by one of the manufacturers with data collected from the measuring station, the average wind speed at 71 meters above sea level is 5.73 m/s. The expected generation for their 3 MW wind turbine is 9,454 GWh (P50), with a plant factor of 36%.
