Teck’s Andacollo Mine in Chile signs for 100% renewable power

The Carmen de Andacollo copper and gold operation in central Chile, which is 90% owned by Teck Resources, has signed up with AES Gener, a 66.7% subsidiary of AES Corp, for the supply of 72 Megawatts (MW) (550 GWh/year) of renewable energy. The shift to renewable energy will eliminate 200,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions annually, the approximate equivalent of taking 40,000 vehicles off the road, at Andacollo.
