September 28 (Renewables Now) - Spanish renewable energy company Grenergy Renovables SL (BME:GRE) has connected its 103-MW Quillagua solar park to the Chilean grid, it said Monday.

Located in the middle of the Atacama Desert in Tocopilla province, Quillagua is Grenergy’s largest project to date.

The park is equipped with bifacial photovoltaic (PV) modules, which will increase the plant’s production output by up to 15%, Grenergy said.

The company expects the plant will reach its full capacity in October. The total annual production is estimated at more than 300 GWh.

Quillagua is part of Grenergy’s portfolio of own projects that the company is targeting for 2022. In Chile, Grenergy has connected more than 30 PV parks totalling over 350 MW of capacity.
