Commissioning of Desafío Solar PV Plant (50 MW)

This plant is located in the town of Escatrón (Zaragoza, Spain). It will generate annually the electricity to provide power to more than 12500 homes.

Last June, we completed the commissioning and testing with REE of the photovoltaic solar plant Desafío Solar. Located in the region of Escatron, Zaragoza, this project has been built on 160 hectares.

Ten 5.15 MVA photovoltaic solar stations for a total power of 49.98 MWac have been supplied. These stations include our Gamesa Electric PV 2500 high-efficiency solar inverters and 1500Vdc, which scores one of the highest performance records in the market (99.1% peak performance; 98.8% European performance).

Each station also includes the step-up transformer and the medium voltage protection switchgear. All this is integrated in an ISO maritime container, with all the interconnections made and tested in the factory, for ease of both field assembly and installation.
