July 19 (Renewables Now) - Norway-based renewable power producer Scatec ASA (OSL:SSO) said on Friday it has started the commercial operation of the 117-MW Guanizuil IIA solar plant in Argentina.
Located in the northwestern province of San Juan, the photovoltaic (PV) power facility is the result of a 50/50 partnership with Equinor ASA (OSE:EQNR). Guanizuil IIA is their second solar project in South America.
Secured in Argentina’s RenovAR renewables tender, Guanizuil IIA should be able to generate some 305 GWh of solar power annually, enough to meet the consumption of 80,000 local households. The PV plant has a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) inked with Argentine wholesale power market administrator CAMMESA, according to Scatec's website.
At present, Scatec is working on developing more than 1.4 GW in Latin America, the firm noted.
