Martifer Solar installs 5.41 MW of solar PV in Romania


Portugal-based Martifer Solar has increased its presence in Eastern Europe with the recent completion of two solar PV plants in Romania with a combined installed capacity of 5.41 MW.

Local company Eurowind Energy A/S commissioned the plants – a 2.03 MW PV farm in Brasov county, Transylvania, and a 3.38 MW plant in Magurele, near Bucharest – with Martifer Solar providing engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services.

The two plants cover a combined area of 12.5 hectares and boast more than 22,000 PV modules. Together, the installations will produce an estimated 7 GWh/year of solar power, which will be enough to satisfy the energy needs of 13,000 local households, removing some 3,500 tons of C0² from the atmosphere in the process.

"Martifer Solar has already built three PV plants for Eurowind Energy A/S in Romania, reflecting the success of a strong partnership that was started in 2012, and which we hope to successfully continue in the future," said Martifer Solar Romania manager, Oscar Marques.

Eurowind Energy A/S MD, Jens Rasmussen, added: “At Eurowind Energy A/S, we highly value our close corporation with Martifer Solar for these projects. We experience Martifer Solar as a very professional and reliable business partner, with very competent and dedicated employees.“

Martifer Solar’s pan-European presence has seen the company claim fourth spot in a recent IHS research report ranking 700 EPC contractors in terms of European presence, and 14th spot in the World's PV integrators ranking.

Romania, meanwhile, is ramping up its PV capacity at a rate of knots. Just last month, Germany’s Skytron was awarded the contract to construct a 50 MW PV project in the country, which will take its presence in Romania to 115 MW, while the overall PV pipeline amounts to an estimated 2.7 GW of solar PV to be added over the coming years. Indeed, in the first half of 2013, Romania installed 203.5 MW of solar power, with 4.6 GW of projects thought to be at the discussion and pre-planning stage.
