Carey has helped Spanish power company Acciona Energía obtain a loan worth US$27 million to cover the VAT costs associated with the 180-megawatt San Gabriel wind farm in south-central Chile.

Santander hired Morales & Besa to provide a non-revolving door credit line to Acciona’s Chilean subsidiary.

Acciona is developing the 61-turbine wind farm in Chile’s Araucania region. The project is expected to create more than 500 jobs during construction and power 270,000 homes once complete next year. The deal closed on 17 December.
