Gestamp Asetym opens 26-MW Spanish solar PV plant powered by Trina Solar


Gestamp Asetym has inaugurated a 26-MW solar plant in southeast Spain–one of the largest in Europe–featuring photovoltaic modules manufactured and supplied by Trina Solar. An opening celebration was held Aug. 7 at the site in Fuente Alamo, Murcia.

Trina Solar supplied 20- of the 26-MW mono- and multicrystalline solar modules required for the project as part of the long-term arrangement between both companies. The PV plant consists of three phases: Fuente Alamo I (8 MW), Fuente Alamo II (8 MW). and Fuente Alamo III (10 MW), which are deployed on 62 square hectares of rural land.

The solar-power system will produce 44,000 MW-hr per year, the equivalent of the electrical consumption of 13,000 homes, according to the companies.

“We are delighted to strengthen our business relationship with our key partner Gestamp Asetym, with whom we expect to continue to work closely in the future, not only in Spain but also in other countries in Europe as business expands,” said Arturo Herrero, Trina’s vice president of sales and marketing.

Gestamp Asetym says it has participated actively in the construction and development of 150 MW of PV plants in Spain and plans to increase its activities in Italy, Greece, and the United States.

Trina Solar also scored another high-profile PV deal in Spain recently, signing an agreement with Spanish Premier League football club RCD Espanyol to become an official team sponsor and to provide 500 KW of modules for a rooftop installation on Espanyol’s new stadium in Barcelona, scheduled for completion later this year.
