RWE has kicked off construction of a 92MW solar project in Spain.
The solar project Gazules is located in the province of Cádiz.
It has been informed that this project comprises two solar parks, Gazules 1 and 2, each having an installed capacity of 46MW.
According to the company, construction work on Gazules 1 has already started, while full commissioning will be held by the end of this year.
It further informed that the project would feature around 240,000 bifacial modules on a total area of 140 hectares. These solar cells will consist of “double-sided modules, allowing solar radiation to be used on both the front and back.”
RWE has been active in developing projects in Spain. At the end of last year, the company commissioned its 44 MW solar park Casa Valdes. Similarly, two other solar projects, Puerta del Sol near Casa Valdes and Las Vaguadas, having a total capacity of 54MW, are in the commissioning phase.
Katja Wünschel, CEO of Onshore Wind and Solar Europe & Australia, RWE Renewables, was quoted in a statement, "The expansion of our Spanish solar business has picked up speed quickly. Five new solar farms in less than two years is a great track record.”
By the end of this year, RWE will have a solar capacity of around 250MW in Spain.
