A record project

Talinay is the first Wind Farm that GES has built in Chile. Construction of 25km of access roads required for the site built in various terrain and ground conditions. The project goal for construction and commisioniong was under tight deadlines for completion. The main milestone was to have all the turbines ready for commissioning before the 31st December 2012.

A comprehensive programme was established to ensure each turbine line with the required production of each phase and the necessary resources to complete all tasks within the required timeframe. We installed a Ready mix Concrete plant on-site for the supply on all turbine foundations, within the wind farm, which resulted in greater flexibility and control. A detailed logistical survey was completed prior to project commencement (to decide between sea or air transport) assisting the procurement and lead in times of required materials in accordance with programme requirements resulting in avoidance of potential delays. Some of the tasks were overlapped such as the concrete paving and the Medium Voltage grid to complete the project within the timeframe. BOP was accomplished within the contractual scope and GES successfully assembled and installed the 45 turbines on time. The project was completed in a record time of 6 months and with no accidents.

Execution schedule:November 2015 – November 2016


Cooperating with the local community

Both wind farms were placed in Mapuche territory, native Araucanians. Accesses to the wind farms were complicated. There was a flooding area in Los Buenos Aires, that made the foundations works very hard. Expediting procedures of the customer and some deadlines in the equipment deliveries made the schedule compliance difficult. Three new subcontractors have been hired to work at the substation. More experienced companies were overflow, due to the high demand of the market. Crane movements between platforms needed to be done with partial or total crane dismantling.

GES worked together with the community. Sand and gravel were bought at the local quarry and a Mapuche women cooperative was created for the services at the dining room. It was necessary to build two bridges to access the site. Water was pumped 24 hours a day to make the foundation works possible at the flooding area. Equipment deadlines have been renegotiated with suppliers and air transport was used to shorten deadlines. A very strength coordination was necessary to work with substructure to ensure the quality of the work. Road survey was continuously done, always trying to reduce the number of hours for the crane movements.

Successfully completion of the wind farm without accidents and with satisfactory quality standards.

Efficient solutions to deal with climatic difficulties

One of the main issues in the project was the "chusca" in this region ground, a fine sand which must be mitigated with water to comliance with the enviromental regulation of the area. Water must be carry on from Calama, the nearest city. Weather conditions made it dificult for the concret to harder. GES was in charge of the construction from the work area facilities for all suppliers working in the plant.

To avoid the chusca inconveniences, the ground was stabilized with quarry material. To compliance the project schedule, GES needed to install two work plants, to have an extra time for the harder of the concret. Electric installation of the working facilities was made with an hybrid system: 3 mini-wind turbines form 1 kW and 44 solar panels from 300 W/ each, with a capacity of 13,5 kW. termal solar power was used for the water. This was the first time an installation alike was installed in a temporary construction.

Despite all the issues and the bad weather conditions during the execution, the project was completed in time applying GES Quality and Health and Safety standards.

Conejo PV. Plant
LocationTaltal, Chile
122 MW
Execution time:
August 2015 – September 2016

One of the biggest PV plants in Chile

The execution of the 122 PV plant was a challenge itself, as it was the biggest solar plant constructed until that moment by GES. PV plant was located in a remote area in the Atacama desert, which made the logistic very difficult. Equipment was delivered from very different places in the world (China, Spain, Sweden, Mexico... ) The project included two substations and an interconnection line.

More than 600 technicians were working at the plant at the same time in some stages of the project. More than 1.000 containers were delivered to plant. 1.26 Million photovoltaic modules were installed.

The project was completed following GES quality standards. This proves GES potential to construct utility scale projects.

Minimizing the local impact through cooperation with the community

It was a big project which includes: permits processing, geotechnical investigation, civil works, substation and control building, engineering, power line, assembly and commissioning. The deadline was very tight due to a delay on hte the foundations design. Winter weather conditions complicated the usual rhythm of civil works. The wind farm is located in the middle of a community of farmers and cattle breeders

An increase of resources has been implemented in order to reach the deadline, which was extended due the delay of the final design of foundations. H&S measurements following GES standards were applied, to reach a safe work site and to prevent any interference to the local population. GES collaborated to maintain a friendly relation with the land owners and the community, helping them with the tools and resources on site and trying to minimize the impact of the project. Continuous interface between GES staff on site, GES engineering department in Spain and the Client in Chile and in Ireland.

The result in terms of quality and schedule compliance was excellent. Continuous improvement in H&S issues along the Project, reflected in the good results obtained in the audits done by the Client. All fo this helped to increase of GES notoriety in Chile, a growing market at that time.
