The Cuel wind farm is located 560kms south of Santiago, close to Los Ángeles city in the Bío Bío region of Chile. Mainstream fully developed the project in association with local authorities, municipalities and the community.

Construction of all 22 turbines was completed Q1, 2014 and, in February 2014, the project started to generate power. Aela Energía, the joint venture company between Mainstream and Actis is fully responsible for the Cuel project.

In 2014 – first year of operation – the Cuel wind farm registered the best plant factor, annual average, while in 2015 it ranked second at national level.

Thanks to the operation of this wind farm, clean energy is generated to supply 55,000 households, equivalent to the total households of the Talcahuano Municipality. With this, 32,500 tons of CO2 are prevented annually, equivalent to the definite withdrawal of 3 million incandescent light bulbs.
