Spanish balance of systems developer Grupo Clavijo has supplied all the fixtures for a Puerto Rican PV project totalling nearly 60MW.
Comprised of Oriana I and Oriana II at 28.62MW and 29.03MW each, the project is located in the municipality of Isabella and owned by Sonnedix.
Grupo Clavijo installed the bipost structures in the project with a slope of up to 20 degrees in some areas; supplementing the robust design and reliability of the project which is ideal for its location – allowing it to adapt optimally to the terrain with a quick assembly that spanned just five months, according to the company.
Understanding bifacial’s true potential: technology innovation and technical bankability of bifacial
The deployment of bifacial PV technology is growing rapidly. It has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce levelised energy costs (LCOE) and increase the Investment Rate of Return (IRR) of PV systems, offering substantially improved energy yield compared to the use of standard mono-facial modules. Even though the concept is not new, it has been a niche technology for many years with uncertainties in predicting performance and optimizing installations. Today, bifacial technology is becoming mainstream, with capacity available at the multi-gigawatt scale and with corresponding global deployment of project pipelines. Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, as he discusses the award-winning Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont, its features, benefits and differences vs. standard glass-glass modules. Jinko Solar’s new bifacial technology innovations will also be highlighted, specifically covering profitability in deployment at utility-scale PV power plants. Andrea will be joined by Dr.Lars Podlowski who will give a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of bifacial PV technology, with a special focus on benefits and risks industry buyers and investors should pay attention to.
