    ISA participates in mega electric project in Chile

    December 7, 2021 - CE Noticias Financieras


      will build the first direct current line with an extension of 1,415 kilometers.

      The Yallique Consortium, which includes Transelec, ISA Inversiones Chile and China Southern Power Grid International (CSG), was selected by the National Electric Coordinator of the southern country to build the first direct current line (HVDC) with a capacity of 3,000 megawatts in 600 kilowatts, which will extend for more than 1,415 kilometers. It is the first line of its kind in Chile that will connect the energy from renewable projects located in the north of the country to take it to the center and south of Chile, leveraging the decarbonization of the energy matrix. This consortium submitted the best offer for the construction and operation of the Kimal-Lo Aguirre project, for an annual remuneration value of 116.3 million dollars. This is ISA's second HVDC technology project after the construction in Brazil of the 2,400-kilometer HVDC Madeira line, which at the time was the longest direct current line in the world. Bernardo Vargas Gibsone, president of ISA, said that this "is a project that effectively contributes to decarbonize the energy matrix of Chile, a purpose that we have not only in this country, but in all countries where we are present with our energy business. The directives indicated that about 3 years of processing environmental and sectoral permits are expected, as well as 4 years of construction for the line to enter into service by the end of 2028.
