Energy market in Chile
The Chilean renewable energy market has been favored by the interconnection of the two major electricity transmission systems in the country. Additionally, a new regulation has been introduced to promote small and medium-scale distributed generation projects (PMGD). In this section of projects, GEOINTEC is once again the leader in the design and execution of geotechnical studies, hydrological studies, extraction studies and specialized topography services in photovoltaic plants.
GEOINTEC is used to developing this range of services for a wide range of clients including project developers, investors, design engineers, consultants, construction companies, EPCists, manufacturers of structures and official bodies.
In 2014, GEOINTEC started its works related to photovoltaic projects in Chile, in the Calama area, and stablished its Chilean subsidiary in 2015, developing since then more than 13 GW of equivalent power in geotechnical studies related to renewable energy projects distributed all over the world.
