On Wednesday 20 July 2011 the Prime Minister of Australia, the Honourable Julia Gillard MP joined Jose Manuel Entrecanales, Chairman of ACCIONA to officially launch our Gunning Wind Farm in New South Wales.
ACCIONA will build its largest ever wind farm in Australia, the MacIntyre complex in Queensland, Australia, with a total capacity of 1,026MW. The project will boost the Queensland government's decarbonisation strategy, mobilising total investments of AU$1.96 billion (€1 billion).
ACCIONA has put two new renewable energy projects into service in Chile in the last trimester: the San Gabriel wind farm (183 MW) in the region of La Araucanía and the Almeyda photovoltaic plant (62 MWp) in the region of Atacama. This means that the company has increased its operating capacity in the country by 84%, strengthening its position as the main generator of 100% renewable electricity in the Chilean market.
