Chinese wind turbine manufacturer Goldwind has won an order for 82 MW for the Punta Sierra project in Chile. This is according to project developer Pacific Hydro, in a press release according to several Chilean media. The factory will deliver 32 of its 2.5 MW wind turbines for the USD 150 million project in Coquimpo.
That the project will be built with Chinese turbines is no huge suprise. Although Pacific Hydro is technically Australian, the company was acquired by state owned Chinese company State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC). Over the last few years, China has lead a declared strategy to help Chinese companies expand beyond the country's own borders. This applies to the wind turbine industry as well.
