Published on

Abengoa is building in Chile, in consortium with Acciona, the first solar thermal tower plant in Latin America. Located in the Atacama Desert, it will have a capacity of 110 MW and prevent the emission into the atmosphere of 630,000 tons of C02 per year. In this same complex, Abengoa has already built a 100 MW photovoltaic plant.
