Verano submits EIA for 6 GW solar project for green ammonia (Peru)

The Chilean solar developer Verano Energy has submitted the environmental impact assessment (EIA) for its proposed 5.85 GW Horizonte de Verano solar project in the district of Majes (Peru), which will be used to operate an ammonia production plant with a total capacity of 1.65 MtNH3/year. The Horizonte de Verano solar project aims to be the largest single-site solar project by capacity in the world. Due to its large scale, the project is expected to begin operation in stages, with the first phase starting operation by mid-2027, consisting of a 1.5 GW solar plant with the capacity to produce more than 420,000 t/year of green ammonia. The project is expected to be fully operational by early 2032.  As part of the project, a desalination plant will also be built to process seawater on-site and use it the electrolysis facility for hydrogen production.  

Verano Energy acquired a 300 MW solar PV portfolio in Colombia in May 2023, and sold a 150 MW project in Argentina at the beginning of 2024. The Horizonte de Verano project marks the entry of Verano Energy into the green hydrogen and ammonia sectors and the largest project for the company.
