EDF Renewable Services has commenced full operations and maintenance (O&M) services for Chile’s second largest solar park, the 146MW Bolero Solar PV plant in the Atacama Desert in the region of Antofagasta.

Dalen Copeland, vice president of business development for EDF Renewable Services, said: “We are excited to announce this expansion of O&M business into South America. We are confident our extensive experience and resources, operating 13GW worldwide alongside the EDF Energies Nouvelles Group, will ensure the long-term performance of this project.”

The 146MW installation, owned by both EDF EN Chile and Marubeni, sells the energy it produces onto the Chilean spot market. The Bolero plant features a single-axis tracking system by Exosun and NEXTracker, along with solar panels sourced from Jinko and Canadian Solar.
