Eiffage Energía has been the awarded the contract for the construction of two photovoltaic plantsº, one of 106.5 MWp in Torreon (Mexico) and another of 50 MWp in Merida (Spain) And their respective connection substations , developed by OPDEnergy. Both plants were the winning bidders at energy auctions held in Mexico and Spain respectively.
The technology used for this ensemble of projects is a high-efficiency mono PERC module called with powers of 370 Wp, centralised inverters with powers between 5 and 7 MW and trackers with single-axis tracking. Emissions into the atmosphere of 108,000 tonnes of CO2 per year will be avoided. This clean energy will be supplied to the general power grid for use in homes, factories, etc.
Eiffage Energía has built more than 14 solar plants for OPDEnergy ,with a total output of 230 MW.
