Together the two thermal power plants will supply 300MW to Chile’s Norte Grande Interconnected Power System (SING), which mainly supplies power to the Esperanza and Gaby mines located in the north of the country. Chile is an attractive market with demand for power forecast to grow at an annual rate of around 6%. CTA and CTH represent a total investment of around US$900 million, including the cost of building a new 144km transmission line and substation.

The CTA and CTH plants feature state of the art technology, known as “circulating fluidized bed”, which allows them to use a range of solid fuels, including up to 10% biomass. This technology helps both to improve the efficiency of the combustion process and reduces emissions.

The two power plants are operated by E-CL, a Chilean power generation company, which is 52.77% owned by International Power. E-CL owns 100% of CTA and 60% of CTH.

Gérard Mestrallet, Chairman and CEO of GDF SUEZ, said: “Our Group is constantly investing in the research and development of new, highly efficient and innovative technologies. Combined with our broad geographic reach and a diversified energy portfolio, this allows us to offer a variety of solutions depending on the conditions of the country where we operate. Chile is an important country for GDF SUEZ in Latin America and this new development shows the Group’s commitment to this growing region.”

Philip Cox, CEO of International Power, commented: “CTA and CTH are modern, efficient facilities that will help to meet Chile’s fast growing demand for power. Both projects are supported by long-term offtake contracts.”

Activities in Chile
In Chile, in addition to CTA and CTH, IPR–GDF SUEZ Latin America also has a 63% stake in the LNG receiving and regasification terminal GNL Mejillones and Monte Redondo, a 48MW wind farm which is part of the country’s central grid. It is also constructing the 34MW hydroelectric plant Laja I.
