Soltec supplies and installs a 475 MW bifacial SF7 tracker plant in Brazil
The photovoltaic plant will occupy 892.5 hectares and generate more than 300 local jobs.
Soltec, the leading manufacturer and supplier of single-axis solar trackers in Brazil, is supplying and installing Soltec's SF7 bifacial trackers at a 475 MW project that the Enel Green Power renewable energy group Enel Green Power is building in Sao Gonçalo, Brazil.
The plant covers an area of 892.5 hectares. The installation has 13,728 Soltec bifacial SF7 solar trackers and 1,235,520 bifacial modules of 385 Wp each.
"We have been working on projects in Brazil since 2015 and, to date, we have more than 2,145 GW of projects. The project in Sao Gonçalo is the largest we have worked on in the country, which reaffirms us as the leading company in the installation and supply of photovoltaic energy in the country. In addition to this, thanks to the installation of bifacial modules, we will be able to produce more energy by optimising space and reducing installation time," says Héctor Sánchez, Head of Sales in Brazil.
Soltec will create more than 300 local jobs during the installation phase, and around 15 permanent jobs during the operation and maintenance phase.
To boost local employment, several agreements have been signed with the local administration to train workers from the surrounding area so that they can be part of the plant's installation.
Soltec has a workforce of more than 750 people and a 15-year track record as a manufacturer of complete solar tracking equipment. The company has a presence in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, Denmark, Egypt, Spain, USA, India, Italy, Israel, Mexico and Peru. With a strong commitment to renewable energy and the environment, the company is dedicated to innovation, product standardisation and customer success.
