EDF Renewable Services announced that it has begun full operations and maintenance services for Chile's solar park - the 146MW Bolero Solar PV plant located in the Atacama Desert in the region of Antofagasta.
"We are excited to announce this expansion of O&M business into South America," said Dalen Copeland, Vice President of Business Development for EDF Renewable Services. "We are confident our extensive experience and resources, operating 13GW worldwide alongside the EDF Energies Nouvelles Group, will ensure the long-term performance of this project."
The Bolero facility, jointly owned by EDF EN Chile and Marubeni, sells the energy produced onto the Chilean spot market. The plant incorporates a single axis tracking system by Exosun and NEXTracker with the solar panels sourced from Jinko and Canadian Solar Inc.
