Spanish renewable energy developer, Hunter Technology (Huntec), has been chosen to install two PV projects in Ecaudor for operator Solarig.

The two projects, one 12MW and one 30MW, will both be located in Montecristi in the Manabi region

Using high-efficiency multicrystalline modules, with inverters of 600 to 700kW, the combined 42MW will generate a claimed 62,181MWh a year.

Construction starts in October, scheduled to launch in March 2014 after 6 months of construction.

Roughly 120 workers will be employed, of which 80% will be Spanish, with all electrical components to be imported from Spanish companies.

“The Latin American market is very open, globalised and permeable allowing us to quickly achieve our goals in the area," said Juan José Moreno Sanchez, technology manager at Huntec, Albacete, Spain.
