November 27 (Renewables Now) - Spanish renewables contractor Global Energy Services (GES) announced the completion of the construction of 88 MWp of solar photovoltaic (PV) farms in Mexico and Spain.
The company was contracted by renewable energy firm Alter Enersun SA to execute the engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) works for the 38-MWp Lazaro Cardenas PV plant in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and the 49.9-MWp Huelva 2020 PV plant in Spain's Huelva province.
Comprised of 114,160 solar panels, Lazaro Cardenas, has been generating power since the summer of 2019. It is expected to produce 60,400 kWh per year, enough to meet the annual consumption of 17,321 households.
Scheduled to commence power supply at the beginning of December, Huelva consists of 133,056 solar panels. It is estimated to generate 101,317 kWh per year, which corresponds to the consumption of 29,056 local homes.
Alter Enersun has also announced it will rely on GES once more for the expansion of the two plants, including a project to install batteries for the Mexican plant in 2020, the firm noted.
