The Norwegian company will deploy 19 N163/5.X units at the site, which will be built in the municipality of Litueche in the General Liberator Bernardo O'Higgins region to the south of Santiago de Chile.

Nordex will supply the turbines in spring 2022 on tubular steel towers with a hub height of 148 metres.

After its completion, Torsa will feed around 300 GWh of clean electricity into the Chilean grid, equivalent to the average energy use in 100,000 households.

The order also includes a Premium Service contract covering three years.

Torsa is the second order Nordex has received from Statkraft in South America. As recently as the end of 2020 Statkraft placed an order with the Nordex Group for the supply and installation of 91 N163/5.X turbines for the 518.7 MW "Ventos de Santa Eugenia" project in Brazil.
