PIRITA POWER PLANT

BASIC ENGINEERING FOR THE SOLAR PLANT: CIVIL AND ELECTRICAL WORKS
CLIENT: LAP. 91 MW
Coquimbo, Chile

Pirita Power Plant is located in the IV Región de Coquimbo, next to the city of La Serena (Chile).

The plant will have a total installed capacity of 91 MW, which will be collected through 310.384 fixed polycrystalline 315 Wp photovoltaic modules.

The project, which is entirely developed by ESTEYCO, is divided into two steps and goes from a first Concept Engineering phase to a later Basic Engineering phase. The scope of the works carried out by ESTEYCO cover, in both steps, the following :

  • Review of the Resource and Energy yield Assessment.
  • Design of the civil works required in the plant, including earthworks, vials, access roads, drainage and foundations.
  • Design of the electrical works required in the plant (low and medium voltage systems).
  • Electrical and civil design of the internal substation of the plant.
  • Electrical and civil design of the high voltage transmission line of the plant.
  • Electrical and civil design of the switching substation
