Statkraft to include 55-MWp solar farm near old Solarcentury's plant in Spain
- Norwegian renewables business Statkraft AS claimed Thursday it had actually gotten the building and construction license to install a 55-MWp solar farm in Caceres province, in Spain's Extremadura area.
The new project, named Talayuela II, will lie 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) from its sis plant-- the 300-MWp Talayuela Solar-- with which it will share access to the substation.
The very first Talayuela was established by UK firm Solarcentury, which has actually considering that been acquired as well as taken in by Statkraft.
The building and construction of Talayuela II is readied to begin in the final quarter of 2021, Statkraft claimed.
The new PV plant will certainly take up a 230-hectare (568.3 acres) area and make use of 94,000 bifacial components. When in operation, it will be capable of creating 110 GWh each year, sufficient to power greater than 30,000 homes as well as offset over 20,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year.
Spanish companies Genia Global Energy Solutions as well as Extrepronatur are co-sponsoring the Talayuela II project alongside Statkraft.
