The Spanish banks Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) and Instituto de Crédito Oficial (ICO), together with the German development bank KFW granted US$118m for the Atacama project, which benefits from a long-term power purchase agreement with an unnamed business. Corporate investment banking firm Crédit Agricole CIB advised Repsol and Ibereólica on the transaction. Crédit Agricole CIB previously advised Ibereólica and Global Power Generation for their 204 MW Cabo Leones II wind farm, as well as for Generadora Metropolitana’s 1.23 GW multi-technology power platform.

Repsol and Ibereólica formed their joint venture in 2020 to develop, build and operate a portfolio of renewable assets in Chile.
