Argentina has signed contracts for two solar projects and a small-scale biogas-fired plant in Córdoba that were successful in the second round of its renewable energy program, RenovAr 2.
Owned by Argentine company Neuss Fund, the two solar projects are the 20 MW Villa María Del Río Seco project and the 17 MW Cura Brochero project.
Crops Investments owns the 1 MW CT Villa del Rosario biogas-fired project, which is located in the department of Río Segundo and burn gas derived from pig manure, whey, gums, rumen residues and fats.
Including these three contracts, 85 of the 88 awarded in the RenovAr 2 auction have now been signed, with a total capacity of around 2 GW. In all three rounds, 206 projects totaling 6,130 MW have been awarded contracts.
