Spanish renewable energy developer, Hunter Technology (Huntec), has been chosen to install two PV projects in Ecaudor for operator Solarig.

The two projects, one 12MW and one 30MW, will both be located in Montecristi in the Manabi region

Using high-efficiency multicrystalline modules, with inverters of 600 to 700kW, the combined 42MW will generate a claimed 62,181MWh a year.

Construction starts in October, scheduled to launch in March 2014 after 6 months of construction.

Roughly 120 workers will be employed, of which 80% will be Spanish, with all electrical components to be imported from Spanish companies.

“The Latin American market is very open, globalised and permeable allowing us to quickly achieve our goals in the area," said Juan José Moreno Sanchez, technology manager at Huntec, Albacete, Spain.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    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.
