Ingeteam surpasses 120 MW of PV power in Chile

The company installed the inverters in a solar plant in Chile’s Atacama Desert with a 100 MW power output — the largest plant in operation in Latin America to date.

The company, which has had a subsidiary in Santiago de Chile for more than three years, is one of this year’s sponsors of the Chilean International Renewable Energy Congress (CIREC), which runs September 9-10 in the Chiliean capital.

In addition to showcasing its latest solar inverters for residential facilities and large PV plants, Óscar González, Ingeteam’s business development manager in Chile, will present details of the group's solutions for the integration of energy storage systems in diesel networks. Likewise, Luis Moreno, Ingeteam’s service sales manager, will discuss Ingeteam’s plans to meet the demand of the Chilean industry with regard to wind and PV plant O&M services.
