Spanish energy group Elecnor has been awarded a $117.2M contract by Santiago Solar to build a solar PV plant in Chile.
With a capacity of 115MWp, the plant will be built in the municipality of Til Til, in the Chacabuco Province.
The contract will include the engineering, supply, assembly and start-up of the plant and the high-voltage evacuation infrastructure via a GIS substation connected with a high-voltage line.
The project will be financed by a syndicate of banks headed by the Crédit Agricole.
Santiago Solar is jointly owned by EDF Energies Nouvelles and Andes Mining Energy (AME), a local developer.
