This 100% Chilean company, with almost twenty years of experience in the market, supplies energy in its different forms, especially to clients in the industrial and mining sectors, from Calama to the Los Angeles area, and with plans to expand to the Los Lagos Region. With its origins in the former Norte Grande Interconnected System, today the company is the main independent control center for solar and wind NCRE plants in our country.
“We are an innovative company, with a young team that finds here a space to develop and grow professionally. Proof of this is that our collaborators generally have a long tenure with us”, emphasizes Pablo Caerols, EnorChile’s general manager, who is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Chilean Association of Renewable Energies and Storage (ACERA A.G.). The professional adds: “The focus of EnorChile is to attend with flexibility to the needs of each of our clients, they are at the center of what we do”.
EnorChile has been evolving along with the market, adapting and making its own the benefits that renewable energies are bringing, through its three main lines of business, both for wind and solar plants: operation of its two control centers for monitoring its own and third party plants, which are the units in charge of coordinating and operating a generation plant, maintaining direct communication with the National Electric Coordinator; Asset Management service of NCRE plant assets; and energy commercialization.
In the case of the control centers, which have state-of-the-art technology, the general manager highlights: “Practically 30% of the renewable energy installed in Chile -solar and wind- is operated from our control centers, which makes us by far the main player in this field in our country, as an independent operator of solar and wind NCRE plants. And this year we should close it with contracts that imply the operation of more than 2 thousand megawatts, a very relevant figure in the national market”.
Through Asset Management, EnorChile provides an integral service that includes commercial administration, operation and maintenance, with complete management optimization. In addition, incorporating innovations such as its process monitoring center, located in Santiago, which allows supporting the personnel in the field, coordinating the operation and maintenance of the power plants, lines and substations, also supervising, for example, the regulatory compliance in safety and environmental issues.
The third service offered by EnorChile, the commercialization and trading of energy, mainly for mining and industrial clients, contemplates, among other things, analysis of the energy valuations generated by a power plant, recognized power, tolls and invoicing processes, also providing the technical and commercial reports that the clients require.
In this context, Pablo Caerols concludes: “We take care of all our clients’ requirements, integrating from energy commercialization to on-site operation. In this way, they see in EnorChile a complete platform for the realization of their services”.
