Worth 5.75 MW, the first system, located in Tejeda de Tietar, represents the companys first project over one MW in size. Kitted out with azimuthal one-axis trackers technology provided by STi Norland, and inverters from GreenPower tech, the system is said to be spread across an area of 45 hectares. It is expected to generate 10.77 gigawatt hours (GWh) of energy annually.
The second project comprises a 6.17 MW photovoltaic system, installed in Guijo de Coria. Again mounted on azimuthal one-axis trackers, the plant occupies an area of 41 hectares. It is hoped that around 11.74 GWh of energy will be produced each year.
A spokesperson for the company tells pv magazine that Hanwha SolarOne supplied the roughly 52,000 photovoltaic modules needed for both projects. They added that the Tejeda de Tietarsystem will receive a feed-in tariff of 0.27 euros per kilowatt hour (/kWh), while the Guijo de Coria project will be awarded 0.26 /kWh. They could not divluge the investment sum, however.
"Thanks to these two new solar power plants, Solarpack reaches 33.4 MW of development in Spain, of which 12.4 MW have been built by the company as the main contractor," commented Solarpack CEO, Pablo Burgos.
