The Colombian company EPM has signed a contract with Powerchina International Group Limited, Colombia branch, to implement the Tepuy Photovoltaic Solar Park, its first large-scale renewable energy project in Colombia. This non-conventional renewable energy project will contribute 83 megawatts of renewable energy to the National Interconnected System (SIN), which could supply a city of 400,000 inhabitants. Powerchina International Group Limited, Colombia branch, will be responsible for the design, civil works, purchase, and sale and transportation of equipment, materials and accessories, as well as assembly, testing, commissioning and environmental activities, under the Balance of System (BOS) modality.

Hefei JA Solar Technology, the company in charge of supplying the 199,534 bifacial photovoltaic solar panels for the solar park, has made the fourth delivery of containers with panels, out of a total of eight scheduled. The project is situated in the municipality of La Dorada, department of Caldas, and is in line with the country’s energy transition policies. With this project, EPM will diversify its portfolio and energy supply, and is expected to contribute significantly to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the country.
