Impsa to build its first Uruguayan wind farm

Renewable Energy developer Impsa is set to build its first wind farm in Uruguay located in the departments of Lavalleja and Maldonado, approximately 10 km from the city of Minas.

The development of the 50 MW Libertador I wind farm, which was awarded to Impsa through its subsidiaries Venti Energia and Innovent requires an investment of $121m.

The construction of the plant is set to start later this year and it will be operational in around 18 months.

The wind farm is expected to generate electricity for 68 000 homes in the region, and to create around 1800 direct and indirect jobs while it is being built.
