After two years of adjustment and contention of new
developments ACCIONA retakes growth and will build LatAm’s
biggest PV plant in Chile (El Romero Solar – 247MW), which
will represent a $343m investment.
Most of this capex will be expend in 2016-17, and the
plant is expected to be operational in mid-2017. This will
enable the ACCIONA to cover a large part of its commitment to
supply 600GWh of electricity from renewable sources to
distribution concession holders in the Central Interconnected
System (SIC) from 2018 onward.
This capacity, awarded in a tender in 2014, will represent
an investment of around $500m for ACCIONA, which means the
company will need to develop additional renewable assets in
addition to El Romero Solar which will mean another $157m investment.
