Yingli offered EPC contracts for 146MW of solar plants in Chile

Published 07 February 2018

Yingli Green Energy Holding Company's subsidiary Yingli Green Energy Europe has secured an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services contract from Jenner Renewables for 12 ground-mounted PV plants in Chile, with the total capacity of 146MW.

According to the agreement, the project is divided in 2 phases: Cluster 1 includes 4 PV plants and the construction will begin in February 2018 with expected operation by June 2018; Cluster 2, including 8 PV plants, will begin by the completion of Cluster 1.

As the EPC contractor and exclusive solar panel supplier for the project, Yingli will supply its multicrystalline modules type YL325P-35B. Upon completion, each PV plant is anticipated to avoid 20.8 tons of CO2 per year.

Jenner Renewables founder and CEO Jorge Calvet said: "As an independent power producer operating throughout Latin America, we are very excited to contribute in such a significant way to the development of renewable energy in Chile. This country is at the forefront of implementing a carbon free electricity system by 2040 and our projects definitely support this strategy.

"This is part of our renewable energy pipeline of 1,500MW, which we intend to develop over the next 3-4 years in Chile, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and other countries in the region."

Yingli Chairman and CEO Liansheng Miao said: "We are proud to partner with Jenner Renewables on such a significant project, which is the largest EPC project that Yingli undertook independently.

"In addition to focusing on our historical customers, such as EPC contractors and project developers, we are also seeking opportunities in some specific countries or cooperation with some specific partners to provide EPC services, which we believe could bring higher added value to our high quality products and therefore increase our service level."

Yingli Europe managing director Fernando Calisalvo said: "We are delighted to secure this EPC, which proves the adequate service level, competitive advantage and capabilities from Yingli Solar. This contract is a milestone for us in Latin American region and we will continue to develop the business unit and strengthen our local presence.

"The framework agreement within both companies includes a pipeline above 1GW, which demonstrates the trust and commitment between Yingli and Jenner Renewables."
