Elawan Energy chooses Gonvarri Solar Steel as supplier for 1,000 solar trackers for 9 photovoltaic plants totaling 440MW
• These solar trackers will be located in 9 plants that are under construction and will come into operation in 2022.
• They will generate 880 GWh of photovoltaic electricity, enough to cover the consumption of the city of Albacete for more than three years.
Madrid, December 10, 2021. Elawan Energy has signed an agreement with Gonvarri Solar Steel for the supply of more than 1,000 solar trackers that will enable the installation of 800,000 modules (solar panels) in the towns of Torrijos (Toledo), Escuderos (Cuenca) and Belinchón (Cuenca). These solar trackers will be supplied through turnkey contracts for the plants.
Currently, these nine solar photovoltaic power plants promoted by Elawan Energy are in the construction phase and are expected to come into operation during 2022. The commissioning of these projects will allow Elawan Energy to generate 880 GWh of photovoltaic electricity, enough to cover the consumption of the city of Albacete for more than three years.
Elawan Energy has a long track record in wind and solar PV projects with more than 1.1GW of operational projects worldwide since 2007.
The trackers provided by Gonvarri Solar Steel are structures that allow the solar panels to be oriented in relation to the movement of the sun, obtaining the maximum efficiency of the installations. Specifically, this agreement includes the supply of TracSmarT+ 1V bifilar and monofilament trackers for 440MWp.
For Gonvarri Industries, participation in this project is strategic as it contributes directly to its commitment to the decarbonization of the economy and sustainability.
