The Aurora Wind Farm attained a new milestone with the arrival of the first blades to the work site. These 61-meter long components were transported from Puerto Montt to the wind farm, located in the Municipality of Llanquihue, Los Lagos Region.

These blades, supplied by the German company Senvion, will form part of one of the 43 wind turbines that will make up the wind farm, with an installed capacity of 129 megawatts (MW), equivalent to the consumption of approximately 195,000 households.

Each wind turbine is composed of a 119-meter tower, a nacelle (box connected to the rotor which contains the gearbox and generator), the rotor and three 61-meter long blades.

The energy generated by the wind farm’s turbines will be collected by an underground transportation system and conducted to a substation, and injected into the National Electrical System (SEN).
