Cerro Pabellón Geothermal Power Plant
Located in the Atacama Desert's high plateau in the Antofagasta Region and was built by Geotérmica del Norte - GDN, a joint venture between Enel Green Power Chile and ENAP. The Cerro Pabellón plant uses high-enthalpy binary-cycle technology. It is South America's only operating geothermal power plant and the first of its kind to be installed in such high altitudes, with a current elevation of 4,500 meters above sea level.
Power generated by Cerro Pabellón later merges into the National Electric System.
