Project Details


The El Pimiento PV project calls for the construction and operation of a 22MW solar photovoltaic plant 12km east from the city of Pozo Amonte. The project is part of an 88MW solar complex composed of four solar plants (El Algarrobo, El Pimiento, El Chañar and El Tamarugo,) carried out by the local unit of German developer Belectric. El Pimiento will feature 244,350 solar modules of 90w spread over an area of 27ha. The electricity generated will be injected into the country's northern SING grid via a 23kV transmission line, a step-up 23/110kV substation and a Tap-Off connection.
