The 60 MW plant will be built in the Gobi Desert, which is said to have "excellent" conditions for grid connection. A spokesperson tells pv magazine that construction is scheduled to be complete at the end of this year.
They added that the 800 MW will be distributed across a number of projects. Around 720 million Yuan (roughly 88.6 million; US$114.9 million) will be invested in the first 60 MW phase. Meanwhile, an unnamed Chinese company will undertake EPC activities.
"Sky Solar received tremendous support from all levels of government through the entire development process including but not limited to the location, land, environmental protection and grid-connection," said the company in a statement released.
No other information was divulged. Watch out for details on Sky Solar's photovoltaic plans in Chile in the November edition of pv magazine.
