Project Details


The Amanecer Solar CAP project calls for the construction and operation of a 94MW solar power plant in Copiapó, in Chile's northern Atacama region (III). Developed by SunEdison Chile, the PV plant will feature 304,848 photovoltaic modules and will be interconnected to the country's central SIC grid under a power purchase agreement with Chilean steel company Grupo CAP. It will generate up to 270GWh per year, supplying mainly CAP's Cerro Moreno Norte iron ore mine. The project will require an investment of US$250mn and will employ 500 workers during construction and 25 as permanent staff when in operation.
