Spanish solar products maker Soltec Renewable Energies announced today that it will deliver trackers for a 158-MW photovotaic (PV) project in Brazil's Minas Gerais state.
The Paracatu PV project, named after the municipality it is named after, is being developed by Solairedirect, a subsidiary of French energy group Engie SA (EPA:ENGI), the company said.
The firm is supplying more than 5,400 complete solar trackers that could be used in extreme environmental conditions, including high winds. This allows the reduction of operational risk, according to Soltec's Engineering Global Director, Jose Maria Lozano.
Back in June, Soltec also started supplying its trackers to a 101-MW PV project in Rio Grande do Norte state, its third in the country, elevating the firm's track-record in Brazil to 551 MW at the time.
