Proimco Spa., the Chilean subsidiary of Grupo Mara, completed the construction of the Javiera photovoltaic plant located in the Region of Atacama in February 2015. The project -which occupies a surface area of 180 hectares - will inject all of the energy into the Central Inter-connection System (CIS) and will be used to supply Los Pelambres, a copper and molybdenum concentrate production and extraction company in the Region of Coquimbo.

The plant has an installed capacity of 69.5 MW DC and it is expected to generate 179 GWh of clean energy annually in the first year of operation, to supply nearly 12% of the energy needs of the mining company Minera Los Pelambres.

SunEdison once again trusted in Grupo Mara to develop this important photovoltaic project. It's a project that makes the high competitiveness of solar energy in Chile clear with respect to other energy sources, particularly in the country's industrial and mining market where SunEdison has marked out an innovative path.
