In recent years, Chile has become a focus area for Statkraft. What began with the power utility's classic technology and the purchase of hydroelectric plant Rucatayo in 2015 as a part of acquiring domestic power company Pilmaiquen, the Norwegian group's Chilean assets have since been extended with three wind farms and the planned solar project Pauna of 600MWp.
Now Statkraft takes a significantly longer stride into the Latin American nation. The Chilean Ministry of National Assets has awarded the utility a 40-year license for an area of 2,610 hectares in the Antofagasta region for developing, constructing and operating a wind farm with attached battery storage – a project of more than 400MW thereby becoming the power company's first greenfield undertaking in Chile, not to mention the facility with the highest capacity rating.
