The park will have 25 installed wind turbines of 6.2MW each, in a total area of ​​4,360 hectares.

YPF Luz chief executive Martín Mandarano said: "This year YPF Luz celebrates 10 years of generating renewable, efficient and sustainable energy from different parts of the country, with a clear federal vision and betting on generating more and better energy throughout the country.
