The 1,000-hectare project will produce more than 750 million kWh of electricity per year, providing sufficient energy to supply the equivalent of 450,000 people.

Ingeteam has already started delivering the 238 central PV inverters from its INGECON SUN PowerMax B Series family, with 1500V technology, each with a rated power output of 1,690kW.

The firm is also supplying the LV/MV transformer, MV switchgear, LV switchboard and auxiliary services transformer.

The firm will also position and connect the 74 inverter stations, in addition to the commissioning and electromechanical installation work.

Chinese PV manufacturer Trina Solar will also be providing 167MW of its multicrystalline PV modules to the project.

Trina Solar will supply 496,000 units of its TSM-PE14H multicrystalline modules with power outputs between 335 and 340W.

“We are very excited to see this impressive PV project grow with Trina Solar modules as it will be the biggest in Europe”, said Gonzalo de Viña, head of Trina Solar Module Business Europe. “We are confident that our business relationship with Cobra has a bright future. Despite the paralysis of recent years in the Spanish PV market, this endeavour proves that the sun shines again in the country for solar PV as the technology is already competitive without subsidies”.

The conference will gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing out to 2030 and beyond.
