ACCIONA was a pioneer in building the 45.78 MWp photovoltaic plant in Amareleja, one of the largest in the world equipped with monitoring throughout the solar farm when it was installed.
With 45.78 MWp of power, the Photovoltaic Plant in Amareleja is one of the biggest in the world that is equipped with tracking in the entire solar field.
It covers an area of 250 hectares in Amareleja, part of the municipality of Moura, in Portugal's Alentejo region.
Grid-connected in 2008, when it was the world's largest PV solar plant. It continues to be the second-largest installed by ACCIONA, confirming the Company's ability to successfully take on major PV solar plant projects.
ACCIONA has installed a total of 116 MWp in large-scale installations. A 94 MWp plant (74 MW nominal) is currently being built in South Africa, in partnership with Aveng. It has also installed, as a contractor for FRV, the 24 MWp (20 MW nominal) plant in Royalla, one of the largest in the country, south of Canberra.
With an installed capacity of 45.78 MW, this plant produces la 93 million kWh, enough electricity for 30,000 households
With a 18-year track record in the industry, ACCIONA is a leading expert in the design, construction and operation of large PV plants.
