Acciona Energía has connected its first renewable energy project in Peru, the San Juan de Marcona wind farm (135,7MW), to the National Interconnected Electricity System (SEIN) grid, representing an investment by the global renewable energy company of US$180 million (€164 million).
The renewable facility, located in the department of Ica, is made up of 23 wind turbines with a capacity of 5.9MW each. The wind farm will produce 608GWh of energy annually, the equivalent of the electricity consumption needs of 478,000 Peruvian households. From an environmental point of view, the San Juan de Marcona wind farm will prevent the emission of around 275,000 tons of CO2 per year. San Juan de Marcona has begun to inject energy into the SEIN through a 220kV transmission line of approximately 33 kilometers, connected to the Marcona substation.
"The commissioning of the San Juan de Marcona wind farm reflects our commitment to contribute to the necessary development of renewable energies in Peru to drive the energy transition towards a low-carbon economy, something that is increasingly urgent for the sustainability of our planet," explained Miguel Arrarás, Acciona Energía’s General Manager for South America.
Acciona Energía began the construction of San Juan de Marcona in April 2022, employing 800 people at the peak of the works, most of them from towns adjacent to the project, boosting local employment and training and creating shared value in the region. This project further expands Acciona Energía’s footprint in South America, where it already has a substantial presence of close to 1,100MW installed renewable energy production.
Acciona starts operation and maintenance of Laguna Lake drinking water treatment plant in the Philippines
The Laguna Lake DWTP, awarded by Mayniland Water Services to the consortium of Acciona and D.M Consulting Inc., is for the design, construction, operation, maintenance and commissioning of the plant. Acciona has started the operation and maintenance of Laguna Lake DWTP in Muntinlupa, city located in the southern part of metropolitan Manila; and about two kilometres from where Acciona carried out the Putatan II project.
While the COP28 presidency celebrates an “historic deal” to transition away from fossil fuels, we must remind ourselves that the future wellbeing of human societies in a livable planet depends on more than that. Keeping fossil fuels in the ground is a necessary condition, but not a sufficient one. To achieve the ultimate goal, we need to fundamentally rethink the value of natural resources and reassess their link to long-term human wellbeing. Having a world climate conference with a tunnel vision on fossil fuels does not help us in that.
