General Information of the Project
The Bosques Solares Los Llanos project (the "Project" or "BSL") of Matrix Renewables Colombia S.A.S. (the "Company" or "Matrix") is located in the municipality of Puerto Gaitan in the province of Meta, Colombia. The Project involves the construction and operation of: (i) three contiguous solar generation projects (BSL1, BSL2, and BSL3) with a total aggregate installed capacity of 81.7 Mega Watt peak (MWp), (ii) a 2,711-meter long, 34.5 kilovolts (kV) transmission line (TL), with 1,714 meters of underground wiring and 996 meters of overhead wiring, and (iii) the retrofitting of Altillanura electrical substation from Electrificadora del Meta S.A. (EMSA).
The three BSLs were recently acquired by the Company from Trina Solar, a photovoltaic module manufacturing and installation company, which was also in charge of the construction of the three solar farms. The Project is in a leadership transition stage and, as of March 2021, it registers BSL1 and BSL2 in the operational phase under Trina Solar's guidelines, while BSL3 is in the technical testing phase before entering its operational phase.
