Elecnor will build a PV plant in Chile for $117 million, according to a press release. The company was awarded the contract by EDF Energies Nouvelles and Santiago Solar, an investment company of Andes Mining and Energy.
The project will be built in the community of Til Til, in the Santiago metro region. Currently Elecnor is in charge of engineering, procurement and construction as well as putting the plant into operation. The company will also build the infrastructure to evacuate the electricity produced.
Elecnor states that the project will be financed by a syndicate of banks led by Crédit Agricole.
The infrastructure company has a large presence in Chile and in the region. A few months ago, Elecnor announced the construction of the largest PV plant in Bolivia. In Chile, the company has built projects in the electrical sector, such as transmission projects and wind parks, and this is its first PV project.
