Financials

Abengoa has announced a collaboration with Capital Riesgo Global to develop the largest CSP plant to date. Abengoa is currently constructing the Arizona-based Solana project, which is expected to commence commercial production by summer 2013. Once completed, it will have a capacity of 280MW.

Capital Riesgo Global invested US$125 million in the project and will, in exchange, receive an equity stake in the project. The US Department of Energy (DOE) granted Abengoa a federal loan of US$1.45 billion in 2010 and the overall investment in the project is US$2,000 million.
Abengoa is currently constructing more than 1GW of PV plants worldwide.

  • Photovoltaics International 24th Edition

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
