Sonnedix reaches COD on 6 MW of PV plants in Chile

Sonnedix Malinke PV plant in Chile

May 5 (Renewables Now) - Independent solar power producer Sonnedix Power Holdings said today that two photovoltaic (PV) parks in Chile, with a combined capacity of 6 MW, have reached their commercial operation date (COD).

The Malinke and Crucero ground-mounted plants, each of 3 MW and using bi-facial solar panels, are located in the Metropolitan Region and the O’Higgins Region, respectively. Basque-Country based CAF Turnkey & Engineering acted as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for both projects.

The two plants' output, estimated at about 12.8 GWh per year, is equivalent to the power demand of more than 6,000 Chilean homes. They are expected to avoid annual emissions of some 5,296 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).

With these new additions, Sonnedix now has 15 operational solar PV plants in the South American country with a total capacity of 235 MW. The company also has a development pipeline of over 170 MW, it noted.
