Sonnedix, the independent global producer of solar energy (IPP) won 903 GWh / year, equivalent to 39% of the national and international public tender for the supply of energy and electricity in 2021 / 01, in which 29 Chilean and foreign production companies participated.
The tender, which hit a new all-time low of US $ 23.39 / MWh on average, auctioned 2310 GWh to meet the energy needs of regulated customers of the National Electric System (SEN) for a period 15 years from 2026.
âWe are extremely proud to have won such an important part of this very competitive tender as it shows our ability to compete in the Chilean power system,â said Sergio del Campo, director of Sonnedix Chile.
Axel Thiemann, CEO of Sonnedix, stressed that seeing renewable energy companies among the winners of this call for tenders âshows the importance of this sector in the national energy matrix. For Sonnedix, this award is a great opportunity to expand our presence in Chile, allowing us to build around 424 MW in solar photovoltaic (PV) projects, investing around $ 300 million.
Sonnedix currently has 4.6 GW of total capacity, including a development and construction pipeline of over 3 GW. Solar IPP continues to actively seek development and acquisition opportunities in OECD countries.
During the preparation of this proposal, Sonnedix was advised by Guerrero Olivos.
