Argentine aluminium producer Aluar Aluminio Argentino SAIC commissioned last week a 50.4-MW wind park located in the local province of Chubut. The Parque Eolico Aluar, as it is named, consists of 14 wind turbines supplied by Vestas Wind Systems A/S. It covers an area of 14,000 hectares. After obtaining the approval from the Argentine wholesale power market administrator Cammesa to commence commercial operations, the wind park is expected to generate enough power to meet the demand of more than 70,000 homes.

Aluar is just the first of a three-stage wind cluster. The second phase, which is currently under construction, is comprised of 17 wind turbines with a combined capacity of 61 MW. The third stage will add another 14 wind turbines which will represent a production of some 53 MW, the company noted.
