US-based renewable energy developer Invenergy has purchased the 64MW La Jacinta Solar Farm in Uruguay from Spanish firm Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV).

The plant has been in operation since October 2015, using 216,000 modules manufactured by China-based firm BYD. It supports eight fulltime jobs.

Matthew Olive, Invenergy’s vice president of development and origination international markets, said: “We’re very pleased to close on the La Jacinta Solar Farm as it advances and strengthens Invenergy’s commitment to Latin America, and particularly to Uruguay.

“We are excited to add to our presence in Uruguay, as we also expect to initiate commercial operations in the coming weeks of Invenergy’s nearby 70MW Campo Palomas Wind Farm.”
