Canadian Solar, Acciona, Enel, EDF, Solarpack and Trina are among the contenders to develop large scale renewables projects. Some 26 power distributors are participating in the procurement as buyers.
The project, planned for the northern department of Atlántico, will compete in the nation’s renewable energy auction next month.
The 8.8 MW Celsia Solar Bolívar plant will be located in the municipality of Santa Rosa de Lima, in the northern Department of Bolivar. It is part of the 250 MW solar project pipeline of Colombian renewable energy developer, Celsia.
Electricity company Celsia will begin work on a 9.9 MW project in March, and grid connection is expected later in 2017.
