EGP building 100MW of new Chile PV

An EGP PV array
Enel Green Power has kicked off construction at two PV project totaling 100MW in Chile, including the 60MW Lalackama, which will become EGP’s single largest PV plant anywhere in the world.

The 40MW Chanares plant, meanwhile, will be built adjacent to the under-construction 36MW Diego de Almagro PV plant, EGP’s first in Chile.

All three solar farms are located in northern Chile.

Italy-based EGP, which already owns and operates 180MW of wind capacity in Chile, did not reveal which kind of modules it will employ at the $110m Lalackama and $70m Chanares projects.

EGP is installing thin-film modules from 3Sun – the Sicily-based module joint venture between EGP, Sharp and STMicroelectronics – at Diego de Almagro.

Unlike the many off-grid PV projects going up in Chile, EGP’s plants will sell power onto Chile’s regulated market, having been awarded contracts last November in a tender held by distributors for Chile’s Central Interconnected System.
