Engie Energia Chile SA has signed a four-year agreement to supply 100% renewable power to Chilean wastewater treatment company Tratacal SA.
Under the terms of the contract, Engie Chile will supply 10 GWh per year to meet the customer's demand in the Calama commune, the Chilean subsidiary of France’s Engie SA (EPA:ENGI) said on Wednesday.
Thank to the agreement, Tratacal will now be able to avoid the annual emission of approximately 14 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
The contract complements Tratacal's own photovoltaic (PV) plant, which supplies 1 MWh of clean electricity to the company.
Two years ago, Tratacal set a target of powering its operations with 100% renewable energy and this new contract with Engie has allowed the firm to achieve the long-awaited goal, general manager Victor Ramirez Figueroa, noted.
