Finis Terrae is a photovoltaic solar park divided in two stages. In the second stage, the aim is to increase the installed power by 126 MW to reach a total of 286 MW. The project is located in the Antofagasta region and an annual production of 389 GWH is estimated, equivalent to the consumption of 190 thousand homes.

Once the Finis Terrae Extension solar park becomes fully operational, it will prevent the emission of 162.800 tons of carbon dioxide per year, thereby contributing to Nexans' challenge of reducing the carbon footprint at a global level.

Currently in Chile there are a large number of photovoltaic projects under construction, which add up to more than 3.3 GW of power and correspond to approximately 66% of the generation initiatives for this stage. In the future, these projects are expected to continue increasing, since the Chilean government's goal is to achieve 100% clean energy by 2050.

Madeco by Nexans is a company with 75 years of history in the Chilean market, dedicated to the production of copper cables and to the creation of added value to the main Chilean export product.
