Mainstream Renewable Power expects its 235MW Sarco wind farm project in Chile's northern Atacama region to begin generating power during the third quarter of 2016, a company press release said.

The firm secured approval of Sarco's EIS and plans to begin construction in 1Q15.

The US$500mn wind park will boast 94 2.5MW turbines and supply the central SIC grid via the Maitencillo substation.

The EIS for a 65km dual circuit 220kV transmission line to connect Sarco to the substation was submitted in June.
