Environmental feasibility study between Chile and Peru

Environmental feasibility study for power interconnection between Chile and Peru, for Enel.

Enel selected CESI to carry out an environmental feasibility study to identify the most suitable routes to connect the electrical networks of Peru and Chile through a new 500 kV overhead line (OHL) allowing a maximum transfer of 1,000MW – 1,500MW electricity.

The power systems of the two countries have historically been separate, operating on different frequencies. CESI identified the technical, economic and environmental requirements to fulfil the new 500kV connection. The study identified geographical and environmental constraints that ruled out options that would require extremely expensive technological solutions to make them environmentally acceptable .
