Germany based inverter manufacturer SMA has secured O&M contracts for two large-scale power plants in Chile, expanding its 2.5 GW portfolio of O&M agreements worldwide.
The two power plants to be maintained by SMA are the 70 MW Javiera Power Plant, located in the Atacama Desert in Northern Chile, and the 110 MW Quilapilun project, located outside of the capital city Santiago.
“Our projects in Chile are a key part of SMA’s strategic O&M investments globally to provide complete solutions for owners of PV assets”, says Chuck Smith, Executive Vice President of SMA Service. “We are pleased to partner with Atlas as a strategic O&M partner in Chile, and support its efforts to further develop PV in South America.”
Atlas Renewable Energy connected the Quilapilun project to Chile’s grid in July 2017, and acquired its stake in the Javiera Power Plant back in May. “We are committed to the continued growth of solar across Latin America, and we need reliable partners to ensure the success of the PV industry here,” says General Manager for Chile Alfredo Solar. “We know that SMA has the experience and reliability necessary to minimize risk, maximize plant life and make sure our PV plants operate smoothly and efficiently. We look forward to partnering with SMA in the long term.”
