December 2 (Renewables Now) - Spain-based Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV) has commenced power generation from its 90-MW Sebastopol solar power plant in New South Wales, Australia.
The renewables developer, part of Saudi Arabia's Abdul Latif Jameel Energy, said on Wednesday that the photovoltaic (PV) park is expected to reach full capacity over the coming months.
Presently in the final stages of construction, Sebastopol should be able to generate approximately 200,000 MWh per year, enough to meet the demand of up to 40,000 households. The plant covers an area of 248 hectares (612.8 acres).
Beon Energy Solutions, a unit of Victoria Power Networks, serves as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor.
The PV park is controlled by Fotowatio Renewable Ventures Australia in which Canadian investor and asset manager Omers Infrastructure recently agreed to buy a 49% stake.
