RWE has began building works on a 92-megawatt ac (MWac) ground-mounted photovoltaic mission in Andalucia within the province of Cadiz.
The Gazules mission consists of two photo voltaic farms – Gazules 1 and Gazules 2 – with a rated capability of 46 MWac every. RWE has already began early building on Gazules 1. RWE will set up 240,000 bifacial modules on 140 hectares. Full commissioning of the mission is anticipated by the tip of 2023. Gazules will be capable of provide the equal of 20,000 Spanish properties with inexperienced electrical energy yearly.
Final yr, RWE commissioned its 44-MWac Casa Valdes photo voltaic farm close to Madrid. Two photo voltaic initiatives, Puerta del Sol near Casa Valdes and Las Vaguadas within the province of Badajoz, with a complete of 54 MWac are within the commissioning part. After the commissioning of Gazules on the finish of this yr, RWE will function a photo voltaic capability of roughly 250 MWac in Spain.
“The growth of our Spanish photo voltaic enterprise has taken off quickly. 5 new photo voltaic farms in lower than two years is a good monitor document,” Katja Wunschel, CEO Onshore Wind and Photo voltaic Europe & Australia, RWE Renewables, mentioned.
RWE Renewables Iberia operates an put in onshore wind capability of roughly 490 MW in Spain. Along with the photo voltaic building initiatives, RWE is constructing the Orkoien onshore wind mission close to Pamplona to check progressive applied sciences to additional promote sustainability.
