“This deal follows closely on the heels of the US$630 million Huemul senior project financing which we announced at the beginning of September. We are proud of the support Mainstream continues to receive in the international financial community. We place great value on our large group of capital providers, ranging from commercial banks, to insurance companies and sureties, to alternative lenders,” he added.

The initiatives are part of Andes Renovables, a wind and solar generation platform worth approximately US$1,800 million that comprises of seven wind and three solar photovoltaic generation assets.


The company indicated that the first 570-MW phase, “Condor”, closed financing in 2019 and construction is already 43% complete.

The second 630-MW phase, “Huemul”, comprises three wind and two solar photovoltaic generation assets.
