Australia-based renewable energy company Pacific Hydro has filed the environmental impact statement (EIS) for its proposed 119.1-MW wind and solar hybrid project in Chile.
The so-called Amolanas Hybrid Park project is designed to feature a 117-MW wind farm and a 82.1-MW solar PV farm, according to the publicly available EIS.
The company would set its park in the Chilean region of Coquimbo and invest some USD 340 million (EUR 288.8m) in the project.
Construction is seen to commence in July 2022, with Pacific Hydro planning to start with the wind farm first. Works on the solar portion of the project are scheduled for November 2023. The construction phase of the whole Amolanas project would finalise in July 2024, Pacific Hydro said in the EIS.
The EIS was recently submitted by Pacific Hydro Chile SA, but has not yet been accepted for a review by the Coquimbo region’s environmental authorities.
Pacific Hydro is owned by China’s State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC).
