Fotowatio Renewable Ventures, a leader in the development of sustainable energy solutions and part of Abdul Latif Jameel Energy, has begun processing the environmental impact study for the Llanos de Marañón solar photovoltaic project, located in the Atacama region of Chile.
The project consists of the construction and operation of a photovoltaic module plant for the generation of electricity, including the installation of 819,801 modules and 192 battery energy storage blocks (BESS). The modules will be connected to 2,160 inverters of 200kW capacity each. In turn, the inverters will be connected to 72 Transformer Substations of 6 MVA each. With this photovoltaic-storage hybrid project, FRV is demonstrating its strategy of diversification with different technologies.
With a nominal power of 432 MW, a peak power of 458 MW and 120 MW in battery storage, Llanos de Marañón is located 4 km northeast of the center of the city of Vallenar. The project will be located partly within the commune of the same name and to a lesser extent in the commune of Freirina, both in the Atacama Region, covering a total area of 825.7 hectares.
With the entry into this new phase of Llanos de Marañón, FRV continues to consolidate its international expansion, and does so in a key market in the renewable energy sector such as Chile, where the development of the project will be accompanied by various actions to support the local community on the part of the company.
