The Pampa Tigre project is part of a broader renewable energy drive by Mainstream in Chile that encompasses three wind farms with a total capacity of 425MW and two solar farms totalling 205MW.

The solar project is located 65km to the south-west of the city of Antofagasta, in the region of the same name. The geographical location of this project provides optimal conditions for the production of solar energy and will help to diversify the national energy matrix and reduce the use of fossil fuels.

This is Mytilineos’ fifth solar farm project in Chile, the others include the 168,7MW Atacama II, 10,4MW Eclipse, 3MW RLA, and 3MWp La Manga projects.
