Chilean firm seeks permit for 220 kV transmission line

Chilean firm Aprovechamientos Energeticos April 11 requested an environmental permit for a 220 kV line in Atacama region that will transport electricity from a 204 MW wind energy project of Spanish renewable energy firm Ibereolica.

The transmission line will stretch 34.2 miles between the Domeyko and Maitencillo substations. It will connect Ibereolica's Cabo Leones II project and future wind power projects to the existing network, according to Aprovechamientos Energeticos.

The wind farms will supply the network through the future Domeyko substation that will section the existing Maitencillo-Punta Colorada line, owned by local grid operator Transelec.
