Chiles's Colbun completes 9-MW PV plant


August 6 (Solar) – Chilean power company Colbun announced on Friday it has started the commercial operations of its 9-MW Ovejeria Solar Plant.

The photovoltaic (PV) farm, the company's first solar power facility built from the ground up, is located in a 18-hectare area in Tiltil commune, Santiago's Metropolitan Region. Comprised of 30,000 PV panels with trackers, Ovejeria is expected to offset around 11,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year.

This solar farm is part of a renewable energy projects portfolio that Colbun will develop based on market conditions and the needs of its customers, the firm's general manager, Thomas Keller, said. The company announced earlier in the year the acquisition of a 150-MW PV project from First Solar Inc (NASDAQ:FSLR).

Colbun is also looking to develop the 607-MW Horizonte wind farm in Antofagasta region. Its portfolio includes three operational hydropower plants (HPPs) with a combined capacity of 62 MW.
