Spanish renewable energy company Solventus SL, through PV Intimicha SpA, requested an environmental permit in Chile on Friday to build a 9-MW photovoltaic (PV) facility in Tiltil, Santiago region.
Intimicha's PV Luma 3 plant will supply clean energy to the residential distribution system through an existing 23-kV line of distributor Chilectra located across the project's area.
The PV company plans to invest USD 19.5 million (EUR 17.2m) in the construction of the solar plant and associated transmission installations as of 2016 and to operate the facilities 30 years.
Last week Solventus presented an environmental impact declaration for the installation of a 78-MW PV park in the Coquimbo region, while four months ago it received approval for a 180-MW project in Antofagasta.
