Cerro Dominador, owned by investment funds managed by EIG Global Energy Partners, on Friday announced the $758 million deal for the project in Maria Elena, near Calama, in the Antofagasta Region, an area with one of the highest solar radiation levels in the world.

The construction phase of the CSP-PV scheme will generate more than 1,000 jobs at its peak during the next two years, the company says. The plant will supply energy to the national interconnected system in Chile, selling most of its power under 15-year power purchase agreements awarded at the end of 2014.

EIG took management oversight of the project at the end of 2016 with the first phase, featuring 62 MW of PV power, starting in October 2017 and the full 100 MW capacity expected to be operational in February 2018.

The $758 million financing has been subscribed by international financial institutions and local banks. Among the backers are Natixis, Deutsche Bank, Société Générale, ABN AMRO, Santander, Commerzbank and BTG Pactual, as well as other institutional investors in a tranche parallel to the bank financing. Other participants are expected to join the banking group in the coming weeks.

Cerro Dominador has been advised by Milbank, Tweed, Hadley and McCloy (as international counsel), Morales y Besa (local counsel) and financial advisor Astris Finance.
