August 19 (Renewables Now) - Spanish solar products maker Soltec Renewable Energies is the supplier of solar trackers to a 220-MW plant currently under construction by Enel Green Power's (EGP) in Mexico.

The company is supplying its SF7 bifacial trackers for a solar park located in Tlaxcala state, the company announced last week.

Owned by the renewables subsidiary of Italian utility Enel SpA (BIT:ENEL), the photovoltaic (PV) facility will use 6,533 SF7 bifacial solar trackers and 548,772 bifacial modules, covering an area of 439 hectares.

The so-called Magdalena II PV park is being built at a total cost of about USD 165 million (EUR 146m), Enel said in April 2019. The first solar farm equipped with bifacial modules under EGP's portfolio, Magdalena II will be able to generate some 600 GWh when at full capacity.
