Construction of the Andes Solar II-B photo voltaic+storage mission, in addition to the Capo Lindo wind farm has been began by AES Gener.
Andes Solar II-B, the primary photo voltaic plus storage mission in Chile, is to be positioned within the Antofagasta area within the north of the nation and can comprise a 180MW photo voltaic park and 112MW battery vitality storage system.
The photo voltaic system will embrace a 10MW pilot of Australian firm 5B’s Maverick expertise, which makes use of modular and prefabricated photo voltaic panels that enable set up in a 3rd of the time and occupy half the floor.
The remaining 170MW will probably be bifacial panels, as used within the 80MW Andes Solar II-A growth which got here into operation earlier within the yr and deliberate for the 59MW San Fernando photo voltaic mission in jap Colombia.

The 112MW lithium battery storage system, which is anticipated to be the most important in Latin America, makes use of Fluence’s sixth era Sunstack answer with a 5-hour storage capability.
The 73MW Campo Lindo wind farm is positioned close to Los Ángeles within the Biobío Region in central Chile. The mission is the primary of a number of wind farms forming a 480MW cluster, which is meant to generate economies of scale throughout building and operations.
“Both tasks are a elementary piece of our Greentegra technique, with which we’re accelerating the vitality transition course of that the nation has initiated in direction of a extra aggressive and sustainable electrical energy matrix,” mentioned Ricardo Falú, CEO of AES Gener at a digital groundbreaking of the 2 tasks.
