Impsa Wind to supply Venezuela turbine order

The wind farm will be supplied out of the Argentine turbine manufacturer’s Brazilian factories and is expected to come on line in 2014.

Impsa will deliver its IWP83 direct-drive wind turbines to the project, with towers of 72-meters.

The wind farm is part of the Venezuelan government’s attempt to increase the role of renewable energy in the electricity supply mix.

Having struggled with blackouts in recent times as a result of droughts impacting on hydropower facilities, the Latin American nation has set a goal of installing 10GW of wind power by 2025.
