Launching the tender in the capital Santiago, energy minister Andres Rebolledo said the land, located near the remote northern city of Taltal, had potential for almost 400MW of wind capacity.
The latest tender will be awarded to the company that offers the government the highest rent, including a fixed and variable component, for the ground. The winner will then have 48 months to carry out the necessary studies.
Developers have already installed more than 1GW of wind turbines in Chile over the past decade. But this is set to double by the end of the next decade after wind projects scored major successes in recent power tenders.
The Chilean state is a major landowner, owning just over half of the country's national territory. This is especially true in the sparsely populated north, making the government a key partner in the development of the country's renewable energy.
To date, 77% of the country's solar capacity and 15% of its wind projects have been built on state land, said minister for national assets Nivia Palma.
