SunPower has now completed construction of more than 165MW of Spanish solar power plants with the completion of its latest project, an 18MW solar plant in Badajoz, Spain at the Olivenza Solar Power Plant. The power plant also used SunPower’s T20 Tracker solar tracking system, which has added to the project exceeding performance expectations, the company said.
“SunPower has extensive experience building solar power installations and the technology to maximize energy production at the site. Their expertise was a key factor in the successful completion of this project. To date, production performance has exceeded expectations,” said Jose Tejada of 360 Corporate, a member of the consortium of equity investors who financed the project.
“SunPower’s innovative solar tracker technology is part of our turnkey solar solution,” said Mario Riello, European sales director of SunPower. “The SunPower Tracker solar power system is a proven and reliable solution for maximizing energy delivery, while optimizing land use and reducing related costs.”
Construction on the project was completed in the spring, and the plant was connected to the power grid by the regional government in July.
