GE Renewable Energy has announced its first wind energy deal in Chile. The project, with Arroyo Energy Compania de Energias Renovables Limitada, will see GE supply six 3.6 megawatt (MW) turbines. Each will have 137-meter rotors, amounting to 21.8 MW in total, and will be installed at sites in souther Chile.

"GE believes in Chile's energy sector as a motor for development and we are determined to use our state-of-the-art wind technology to harness the vast wind potential in the country," Vikas Anand, general manager for GE's Onshore Wind Business in the Americas, said in a statement Wednesday.

The Chilean government aims to have 60 pct or more of the county's electricity generated by renewable sources by 2035 , rising to 70 pct by 2050. The government also plans to cut the country's greenhouse gas emissions by at least 30 pct compared to 2007 levels by 2030.
