Sep 8 (Renewables Now) - Spanish solar products maker Soltec Renewable Energies announced today that it will deliver trackers for a 38-MW photovotaic (PV) project in Brazil's Bahia state.

The Assurua PV project, located in the municipality of Itaguacu, is being developed by Quebec Energy. In all, Soltec is supplying 1,330 units of its SF Utility complete solar trackers.

This plant is the fifth solar facility in Brazil to be using Soltec's trackers and the second one in Bahia state. Delivery should take place in two months. The trackers supplied will support 319,200 thin-film cadmium telluride (CdTe) modules, the company said.

Assurua is estimated to generate over 78 GWh per year, enough to meet the annual demand of some 38,200 local households. Once completed, the PV plant can also offset over 45,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually, Soltec noted.
