Javiera Power Plant

Atacama Desert, Chile

Overview

Providing clean, renewable power to one of the largest copper producers in the world, the Javiera project is installed high in the remote Atacama desert in Chile. Solar, it would seem, is meant for the desert. But that doesn’t make installing a major 69 MW utility project any easier, especially when you are working in the driest non-polar desert on the planet, a location often compared to Mars.
