La Confluencia hydropower project in Chile registered under Clean Development Mechanism

Chile's La Confluencia hydro project has been registered under the Clean Development Mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol, SN Power reported.

The 155-MW La Confluencia hydropower project is operated in Chile by Tinguiririca Energia, a 50/50 joint venture company between SN Power and the Australian power company Pacific Hydro. La Confluencia will reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 423,000 tons per year, which is equal to the CO2 produced by 118,000 automobiles in a year, SN Power said.

This is the second largest run-of-river hydropower plant registered in Chile after La Higuera, also owned by Tinguiririca Energia and the fifth SN Power power plant registered under the CDM.

SN Power already has Allain Duhangan (India), Cheves (Peru), La Higuera (Chile) and the Totoral Wind Farm (Chile) registered with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

In 2010, Chile's president officially unveiled the 310-MW Tinguiririca hydroelectric power complex in the Tinguiririca valley of central region VI Chile.

The complex consists of the La Higuera and La Confluencia hydro stations.
