  • Construction to begin on Nuble hydropower project in Chile

    Chilean utility Compania General de Electricidad S.A. (CGE) plans to begin construction this year on its 136-MW Nuble run-of-river hydro project, which could put the hydropower project on schedule for completion in 2013, project developers told wire services.

    Environmental regulators approved the hydropower project in October 2008, and construction had been slated to begin in 2009.

    The hydro plant, located in southern Chile, will link up to Chile's central SIC grid and will generate around 700 GWh per year, reports indicate. The cost of the project is expected to hit US$300 million, according to CGE.

    Also in Chile, the 155-MW La Higuera hydro plant being developed in the Tinguiririca Valley is expected to come online in June 2010, wire reports from the region indicate.
