Engineer Mario Cebreiro Wind Farm (‘PEMC’)

PEMC is located on provincial route No. 51, 18 km from the City of Bahía Blanca, Province of Buenos Aires. The wind farm comprises 29 V-126 Vestas wind turbines, each with a 3.45 MW power capacity and an 87-meter hub height, with an approximate 48% load factor of P50. It has an installed capacity of 100 MW, representing 0.2% of Argentina’s installed capacity. It was commissioned for service in June 2018 and sells its energy to CAMMESA (Argentine Wholesale Electricity Market Clearing Company) under the RenovAr program. Since 2019, its historical average annual generation was 386 GWh. Even though Pampa is the operator, the Company had a 50% direct interest in the capital stock of Greenwind S.A., a company whose only asset is PEMC. On August 12, 2022, Pampa Group acquired the remaining 50%, reaching 100% of ownership. For further information, click here.
