German PV developer Conergy has supplied modules to its partner Prosolia for two rooftop PV installations in Spain and the Canary Islands which have a combined capacity of 3.3MW. Prosolia acted as general contractor for both projects.

The first installation is located in Seseña in the province of Toledo, Castilla-La Mancha, which is around 80 kilometres from Madrid, Spain. It has been constructed on the rooftop of a warehouse owned by an unnamed German logistics company covering an area of around 12,000 square metres. The array is the larger of the two installations and has a PV capacity of 1.8MW.

The second installation has been built on a 10,000 square metre roof belonging to food wholesaler Mercatenerife in Tenerife's capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife. According to Conergy, the array represents the second largest rooftop solar power system in the Canary Islands with a 1.5MW capacity. The largest system, which was also developed by the German PV developer, has a capacity of 1.7MW.

“We needed to build the solar power plants in a record time of only three weeks in order to meet the deadline of the legal regulation of the feed-in tariffs”, says José Luis Gandia, managing director of Prosolia in Spain. “Therefore, we had to work very efficiently. With our partner Conergy we were able to perfectly coordinate and plan the exact arrival of the components in order to execute the installation on time. In addition to the rapid and flexible delivery, Conergy’s local infrastructure was a key to success for the projects.”

The two latest rooftop systems are due to connect to the grid at the end of March. In total, they will feature around 13,600 Conergy P-Series modules which will help to generate 5,000MWh of clean electricity every year.

“Conergy has achieved a leading market position in the Canary Islands,” commented Luis Jiménez Gutierrez, managing director of Conergy Spain. “On Gran Canaria we were responsible for the largest rooftop installation in the whole island group and now we are working with our partner Prosolia on the second-largest, this time on Tenerife. Both of the rooftop installations currently receive a feed-in tariff, but we are well prepared for the time when these payments come to an end. Solar power is already competitive in the Canaries and mainland Spain: since last autumn, we have built 14 grid parity installations with own consumption levels of almost 100%.”

The solar tracker market continues to mature at breakneck speed, with designs and component selections becoming ever-more complex in the pursuit of better project economics. But a more simplistic design could deliver a triple benefit of lower Capex, EPC and Opex costs. This webinar will set out the ideal single axis tracker design for utility-scale solar farms. The design leapfrogs from decades of experience, with a comprehensive understanding and attention to the three cost structures of Capex, EPC and Opx. Sun and Steel Solar has prototyped a single axis tracker designed to deliver up to US$0.03/W in real savings compared to existing single axis trackers on the market. That’s US$30 million for every gigawatt deployed.
