Campanario mega solar plant in Spain, in a deal worth over EUR 120 million. Located in Bonete in the Albacete province, the project involves building five adjacent photovoltaic plants, each with a 50 MWp capacity for a total output of 250 MWp. Just over 563,000 solar modules producing 440 Wp to 445 Wp each will be installed across a 400 hectare site. The energy generated will be transformed by 67 inverters and electricity generation will be centralised by a single electric substation equipped with three transformers. Lastly, a 3,400 meter power line will be built to connect what will be Europe’s largest collector of renewable energy, already powered by a number of existing renewable energy facilities nearby..
The Campanario large-scale photovoltaic plant will power almost 122,000 homes and generates an estimated 96.5 GWp of energy annually. Moreover, the plant’s operation is expected to result in 187,000 tonnes of avoided CO2 emissions.
The handover of this major new Spanish infrastructure is set to take place at the end of 2021.
