The company already operates the 33MW Negrete wind farm in southern region Bío Bío region through Aela Energía, a JV with Actis.

Mainstream also reported it will soon close financing and begin construction this year on wind projects San Manuel (27MW) and Alena (43MW) and solar park Pedernales (140MW).
