E-CL SA, a subsidiary of Gdf Suez S.A (GSZ), is undertaking the Planta Solar Fotovoltaica Pampa Camarones project in Arica, Chile.
The project involves the construction of a solar power plant with a capacity of 300MW. It includes the construction of powerhouses, substations, access roads and related infrastructure, installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and other related equipment, and the laying of transmission lines.
The plant will install approximately 1.2 million crystalline silicon PV modules of about 300Wp each. The energy will be injected in the successive Northern Interconnected System (SING) stages.
The project is being developed in eight phases. The initial five phases will have generating capacity of 6–12MW each with a combined capacity of 50MW, the sixth phase will have a generating capacity of 50MW, the seventh and eighth phase will have a 100MW capacity each.
First five phases will be developed in around 30 months, with a six-month deadline for each stage. The remaining phases will be developed on completion of the first five phases.
In September 2013, E-CL requested an environmental permit to build a solar power park.
In February 2014, E-CL received the environmental approval.
Acciona was appointed as EPC contractor for the project.
Construction activities of the first phase were completed and planning activities of remaining phases are underway.
