Spanish renewable energy company Solventus SL has requested environmental permits to build two solar photovoltaic plants in Chile.
The company through its subsidiary PV Intimicha SpA, requested an environmental permit in Chile last week to build a 9 MW PV Luma 3 plant in Tiltil, Santiago region.
The firm plans to invest US$19.5 million in the construction of the solar plant 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 through its subsidiary PV Lilen SpA.
The company is planning to install 279,160 solar modules and invest around US$150 million. Construction is initially scheduled for early 2016.
