70 MW Spanish PV park to be realized


Set to be located around 70 kilometers north west of Alicante, construction on the photovoltaic park is scheduled to begin next July, and be complete by January 2013. In a statement released, Wirsol says that it will be grid connected in stages.

In terms of equipment suppliers, a spokesperson for the company tells pv magazine that either Suntech or Yingli will provide the photovoltaic modules needed for the project, while Emerson will deliver the inverters. Meanwhile, a feed-in tariff of 11.71 euro cents per kilowatt hour has been secured.

Commenting, André Oechsler, managing director of Wirsol Spain, adds, "The Alicante project has caused quite a sensation in crisis-ridden Spain. The fact that we are working together with BayWa on this scale is a strong signal."

It is expected that around 130,000 people will benefit from the energy generated from the project.
