Situated in the Atacama desert in Chile, the string optimisers will connect the 240MW solar PV plant to a 112MW/560MWh DC-coupled energy storage space system.

The project will provide renewable sources to Sierra Gorda SCM's copper mining operations approximately Antofagasta, which has one of the highest degree of solar irradiation in the world.

" We are pleased to be part of this record-setting PV+ storage power plant," stated Levent Gun, Ampt Chief Executive Officer. "It genuinely establishes the criterion for transmission-level use of energy storage to enhance grid reliability while gaining from the energy independence and also reduced price of renewables."
