April 28 (Renewables Now) - Spanish solar EPC specialist Enerland said that it will soon start building two solar PV plants in Colombia to deliver 38.9 MWp of new capacity.
The projects are the 26.19-MWp La Tolua and the 12.71-MWp Tierra Linda. Enerland did not say who the customer was in its press release on Wednesday.
The solar farms will feature 72,720 bifacial modules mounted on trackers. The company expects to commission the plants at the end of 2022, it said.
Once in operation, La Tolua and Tierra Linda together will generate around 77.2 GWh of power per year.
Enerland completed its first project in Colombia in 2021, when it installed the 5.5-MWp Canal del Dique solar farm for Colombian natural gas distributor Surtigas. The Spanish company says it has some 1,000 MW of projects in the development portfolio in Latin America, and 145 MW under construction.
