French energy giant Total called the 50:50 joint venture a “first significant step” into the U.S. utility-scale solar market.
The two French energy giants have announced a partnership agreement to develop, build and operate the Masshylia project – a 40 MW electrolyzer coupled with solar parks at the Total biorefinery in Châteauneuf-les-Martigues, in the southern region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d´Azur.
The French company will work with Angolan developer Greentech. According to Total, the solar project is in line with Angola’s plan to encourage foreign investment and promote renewable energy sources, with the goal of reaching an installed capacity of 800 MW in the country by 2025.
The new tool is aimed at accelerating the deployment of photovoltaic power plants on degraded or polluted land, parking areas and quarries in France.
The company is answering the growing demand for storage systems in virtually all markets. China itself is on a steep trajectory to increase its deployment rate.
The Solar Mapper uses artificial intelligence algorithms that compile data extracted from satellite images. It can estimate site solar potential and indicate the most suitable technology.
Plans to issue a request for proposals related to the contracts to develop twin 500-600 MW solar plants in the sultanate by the end of this month appear to have slipped but the head of awarding utility the Oman Power and Water Procurement Company has reportedly stated the process is in train.
