Proyecto Dominga de Andes Iron sería ingresado al SEIA en septiembre

Iniciativa minera de Garcés Silva y Délano actualmente estaría ponderando comentarios, sugerencias e inquietudes de las autoridades.

Se esperaba que a fines de este mes Andes Iron presentara a tramitación ambiental el megaproyecto Dominga, pero fuentes del sector confirmaron a ESTRATEGIA que el respectivo Estudio de Impacto Ambiental (EIA) aún no será presentado ante el Servicio de Evaluación e Impacto Ambiental (SEIA), debido a que actualmente autoridades públicas se encuentran dialogando con la empresa para afinar los últimos detalles del proyecto.

De acuerdo a las fuentes, la compañía ligada a los empresarios Carlos Alberto Délano y José Antonio Garcés, está integrando distintas observaciones, comentarios, sugerencias, particularmente de los Seremis, con el fin de consolidar un proyecto robusto que supere sin mayores contratiempos esta etapa. Ahora se espera que el mismo sea ingresado hacia fines de septiembre.

Dominga, ubicada en la Cuarta Región, costará cerca de US$2.500 millones y se transformará en una operación de la gran minería que apunta a producir en torno a 11 millones de toneladas de concentrado de hierro y un promedio de 125.000 toneladas de cobre al año.

  • Venezuelan state oil firm PDVSA said that processing of Lagotreco crude oil at El Palito refinery grew 26% in 2014. The refinery also co-processed 1,625t of spent catalysts and 608t of hydrocarbon-impregnated soil, the NOC said in a release. El Palito has a maintenance stoppage scheduled this year, as well as works to improve its effluents and sulfur recovery plants.

  • Peru, the world's third largest copper, zinc and tin producer and also an exporter of natural gas, fishmeal and coffee, will grow less than originally forecast this year due to slumping commodities prices, finance minister Alonso Segura said Thursday. GDP growth will probably be closer to the central bank's forecast of 4.8% for 2015, down from the finance ministry's earlier prediction of 5-5.5% growth, Segura said. The economy expanded 2.4% last year compared with 5.1% in 2013, he said. "It would be demagoguery to claim that Peru could grow 6-7%. That isn't possible in the medium term," Segura said at the Bloomberg Summit in Lima. "The situation is challenging, but the Peruvian economy will grow twice as much as last year and lead the region." The government, which plans to sell 3bn soles (US$1bn) this year to help finance infrastructure investments, is cutting taxes and will increase public spending in infrastructure projects including 22 public-private partnerships to be awarded in concessions this year and which represent 3.6% of GDP, Segura said. Peru, which has lined up US$62bn in mining investment projects over the next decade, has an "interesting portfolio," Segura said. Falling crude oil prices and the devaluation of the Peruvian sol, which fell 6% against the US dollar last year, will help spur growth by aiding exporters and cutting industry costs, he said. Peru is a net oil importer. "Today the mining industry faces a complex situation worldwide," Segura said. "Some projects will probably be delayed due to prices." Peru has room to cut interest rates further to help spur growth, central bank president Julio Velarde said at the same event. The bank earlier this month cut its benchmark lending rate to 3.25% from 3.50% after the economy grew just 0.3% in November, the slowest rate in nearly six years.

  • Located in the municipality of La Ligua in central Valparaíso region (V), the Doña Carmen energy complex will combine five different technologies to supply 170MW of clean energy to Chile's central SIC grid. The project is carried out by local developer Imelsa and its first phase calls for the construction of a US$67mn photovoltaic solar plant with an installed capacity of 40MW. The company has filed an EIA with Chilean environmental authorities, expects construction works to begin by mid-year and the plant to come online in December. Three other plants within the complex will combine pyrolysis and biomass to produce synthetic diesel, generating 22MW of electricity in the process though nine diesel-fueled generators. The plants will use non-recyclable plastic, tires and guano from a neighboring industrial poultry farm. Investment for the three plants is set at US$79mn with a reviewed EIA being filled early this year. Works include the construction of a 23kW internal transmission line, a 23/220kV step-up substation and a tap-off substation that will supply the central SIC grid at the Los Vilos-Nogales stretch. The Doña Carmen energy complex will have an installed capacity of 170MW. (CREDIT: Imelsa) To strengthen the local energy supply, the company is also developing a back-up 70MW diesel plant that will run 1,000 hours per year and require an investment of US$43mn. In addition, the Doña Carmen project calls for a wind farm and a natural gas GNL/diesel plant, with EIAs to be filled in the near future, Imelsa's business manager Carlos Álvarez told BNamericas. Imelsa is financing the US$228mn project with up to 90% of the capital coming from local distributor Saesa and Swiss solar firm Etrion. The company is developing over 70 projects nationwide and plans to bring - and operate - over 1,500MW to the grid by 2017.
