AELA GENERACIÓN S.A.
Category B projects have potential environmental and/or social impacts and risks that are less adverse than those of a Category A and which are generally limited to the project site, largely reversible and can be mitigated via measures that are readily available and feasible to implement in the context of the operation.

Project scope and objective
The AELA Generation Project (the “Project”) includes the financing of two new wind farms located in Chile’s Atacama and Lakes regions, respectively; a 73 km, insulated 220 kV transmission line linking the Sarco wind farm to the existing substation at Maitencillo; and the Cuel wind power plant currently in operation.
The Sarco wind farm (“Sarco”) will be sited on a 2,680 hectare lot, will have an installed capacity of 170 MW, and will consist of 50 Senvion 3.4M114 turbines. The power to be produced will be delivered to the Maitencillo substation over a 73 km, insulated 220 kV transmission line, and construction of this line is also part of the project. The Aurora wind park (“Aurora”) will be located on a 2,500 hectare property, will have an installed capacity of 129 MW, and will consist of 43 Senvion 3.0M112 turbines. The power generated there will flow directly to the existing transmission line (220 kV) that joins the Rahue and Puerto Montt substations. The Cuel power plant (in operation) has 23 GW87 wind turbines for a total installed capacity of 33.0 MW.
The IIC’s participation in the financing will help to increase the supply of renewable energy in Chile.
