- The CDC is currently considered the most modern one in Latin America
- It has a built area of over 20,000 square meters
On August 22, the president of the National Electrical Coordinator of Chile, along with the Minister of Energy and the mayor of the Municipality of Pudahuel, inaugurated Chile’s new National Load Dispatch Center (CDC) built by Ferrovial Construction. This kicked off the National Electrical Coordinator’s activity, which is already considered the most modern in Latin America.
Ferrovial Construction designed this center, which has more than 20,000 square meters of built area on a 9,000 square meter plot. This way, the country’s need for facilities with sufficient capacity to coordinate the operation of the entire national electricity system is answered.
The new center also has anti-seismic technology, solar panels, and a cutting-edge technological design for the project’s two buildings. The new facilities also comply with the sustainability standards set by the Chilean energy transition plan and have LEED® Silver category Certification and Uptime Institute TIER III Certification.
The first building will be used entirely as office space, and the second will house a Data Center with seismic isolators for protection in case of earthquakes. The Office Building (EOF) has five floors of offices and a total area of more than 15,000 m2. In addition to this building, there are two underground floors that will house electricity, air conditioning, security, fire, access control (controlled by BMS), and 250 parking spaces.
Besides having all the necessary international certifications to ensure proper operation and high safety standards, its exterior features landscaping and all the necessary measures for roadway mitigation.
