Aurora is a 129 megawatt project located in the Los Lagos region in the south of Chile - about 50km from Puerto Montt. Aurora received its environmental approval in September 2015 and in October that year, was awarded a 20 year contract by the National Energy Commission (NCE) under a competitive bidding process to supply regulated customers in Chile's SIC electricity system.
In August 2017, the Aurora wind farm reached financial close and is now in construction.
Upon its completion, the wind plant will supply more than 185,000 households per year with electricity.
Aurora wind farm forms part of Mainstream's Aela Energía platform, a joint venture with private equity firm Actis with a total platform portfolio of 332 MW.
