The proposed Project involves the construction and operation of a 100 MW wind power project located in Tornquist, Argentina, approximately 30 km north of Bahia Blanca. The Project comprises 30 wind turbine generators (WTGs), as well as an electrical substation and connection to a high voltage transmission line that passes through the Project site. The Project site is 950 hectares and is predominately agrarian and cattle lands. The nearest towns to the Project site are Tres Picos (6 km) and Tornquist (26 km). The Project site is located within the Interior Plane Pampa eco-region. There are three Important Bird Areas surrounding the Project site each located approximately 20 to 30 km away. Desktop studies indicate potential presence of high priority species such as Chloephaga rubidiceps (Ruddy headed goose), Buteogallus coronatus (Crowned solitary eagle), Gubernatrix cristata (Yellow cardinal), Leistes defilippii (Pampas meadowlark). The Project continues to collect site-specific primary data on birds and bats through on-site baseline surveys. The Project site is owned by three private landowners, each of whom has a house within the Project site. Although no resettlement or economic displacement is anticipated, potential impacts to these houses and other land uses that will change due to the Project’s activities during construction and operation will need to be assessed and mitigated.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)
The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
