- The manufacturer and technology developer is supplying 264 MW for the Valdesolar photovoltaic plant owned by Repsol.
- Located in Badajoz, the project is the multi-energy company’s largest in Spain and will provide 140,000 homes with clean energy annually.
- Axone Duo structure will increase the performance of the plant, making the most of the soil conditions.
Spain, September 21st
PVH is supplying its Axone Duo double-row solar tracker to the 264 MW Valdesolar project, Repsol’s largest photovoltaic plant in Spain. This installation, which is located in the province of Badajoz, is a new milestone for the manufacturer in a particularly complicated year due to the situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The company demonstrates that it has diligently adapted its production processes from its headquarters in Valencia, where it already has three factories and from where it operates for some of the largest international photovoltaic projects. In the words of Emilio García, COO of PVH: “Being the supplier of solar structures for Repsol’s largest project in Spain is a success that reflects our work throughout the value chain of photovoltaic solar tracking“.
In addition, he says, “we thank Repsol for the trust placed in our experience, technology and professionalism. We continue to work to develop solutions that increasingly optimise our customers’ projects“. The installation also has a long-range communication system that simplifies the network infrastructure, allowing the entire plant to be covered with fewer antennas, controlling the thousands of solar trackers more efficiently.
Valdesolar uses the company’s Axone Duo solar tracker, designed and tested in adverse weather conditions. As the company explains, “Axone Duo adapts optimally to the weather conditions possible in the location where the project is located, caused by wind, solar irradiation and orography“.
It is estimated that the installation will generate enough clean energy to cover the electricity demand of approximately 140,000 homes per year, avoiding the emission of 211,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.
