The Energía Austral SpA hydroelectric development company is developing the Cuervo hydroelectric plant in Chile’s Aysén Region plus a dedicated transmission system to inject the power produced into Chile’s Central Interconnected Grid (SIC). Cuervo will have a total generating capacity of approximately 640 MW and has the potential to displace about 1.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually from Chile’s Central Interconnected System (SIC). Energía Austral is a joint venture owned by the Swiss group Glencore and the Australian integrated energy company Origin Energy.
