Interenergy expanding Panama renewable power footprint

Panama’s environment ministry has admitted for review a 60MW solar park planned for the Rincón area in Gualaca district, Chiriquí province.

Special purpose company Helios Apolo Solar – backed by US-based Interenergy – submitted the environmental impact study for the project, also called Helios Apolo Solar.

The US$17.3mn, Jinko Solar-equipped plant would connect to the grid at state power transmission company Etesa’s Guasquitas substation.

In Panama, Interenergy already participates in the operational 40MW Tecnisol solar park, as well as in wind operator UEP Penonomé II and thermo generator Pedregal Power.

The group’s flagship undertaking in the country is the 670MW Gatún natural gas-fired project, which broke ground last month.

The ministry also accepted for evaluation an EIS filed by Greenwood Energy Central America for the 9.8MW Finca solar project in Chiriquí.

The ministry, meanwhile, approved SB-2 Project’s (MASPV Energy) EIS for the 11.22MW San Bartolo 2 solar park but rejected an EIS for the 5MW La Inmaculada solar project (possible expansion to 20MW).

The latter was not approved on grounds that the same-name developer, controlled by EnfraGen, did not submit additional required information in time.
