Mainstream Renewable Power Chile awards five power projects [free access]

May 7, 2020

Mainstream Renewable Power Chile has signed contracts for the construction of five transmission lines to connect the company’s three wind warms and two solar farms to the Chilean national grid.


Altogether, these five renewable energy generation plants boast 630 MW in installed capacity. The Valle Escondido solar farm in the Atacama region will be connected to the main grid through a transmission line covering over 55 km, a project that has been awarded to Chilean power transmission companies Transelec SA. Mainstream has also hired Transelec to build the Frutillar Note substation for the Puelche Sur wind project in the Los Lagoas region. Chile-based Inprolec has been chosen to build a 22 km transmission line for the Ckani wind farm in Antofagasta.


A consortium formed by Siemens and Spain-based Isotron is tasked with the construction of a transmission line covering 23.5 km in length for the Llanos del Vientos wind farm in Antofagasta. Meanwhile the Pampa Tigre solar farm in the Antofagasta region will be connected via a 13 km transmission line of the Cerro Tigre wind farm and a substation, which will be built by Siemens and Chile-based Agrosonda.
