Bidders table projects averaging 20MW for commissioning by end-2025


Ten companies have submitted proposals to the Chilean government to build green hydrogen projects to start operations by December 2025 at the latest.

The proposed projects have an average capacity of 20MW, according to Corfo, the state body coordinating the tender.

The winning projects are expected to be announced at the end of the year and will receive up to $30mn from a total pot of $50mn.

The companies proposing projects are: French industrial gases company Air Liquide, Chilean steelmaker Cap, Danish fund management company Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, Italian utility Enel, French utility Engie, Chilean LNG terminal operator GNL Quintero, Chilean power developer Imelsa, German chemical company Linde, French hydrogen power developer Hydrogene de France and Chile’s Sociedad de Inversiones Albatros.

“It must be considered that Chile, thanks to its advantages in the generation of renewable energies, with the highest solar radiation in the world and an excellent wind resource, is one of the countries that stands out for its potential to produce and export green hydrogen to world level,” says Pablo Terrazas, Corfo’s executive vice president.

The projects are to be located in the regions of Atacama, Antofagasta, Valparaiso, Biobio, Aysen and Magallanes.
