Enel toasts 86MW Spanish solar double
Enel Green Power Espana has completed construction and produced electricity with a combined capacity of 86 MW at the La Vega 1 and 2 solar farms in Spain.
The ventures, located in the municipality of Teba, near Malaga, consist of approximately 224,600 panels, 14 transformation centers, one substation and approximately 50 km of underground cabling.
Enel said the construction of La Vega 1 and 2 cost EUR 60m, with more than 380 people involved during construction.
Electricity can produce 171 gigawatt-hours a year from the plants.
Enel Green Power head of construction Luca Capuozzo said: “The connection to the network of La Vega 1 and 2 is a great source of pride, not just for me, but also for the 300 colleagues who have made it possible in record time for the Malaga territory.”
The company is using virtual reality to track these facilities through smart glasses, which allow supervisors to remotely observe to the construction works without the need to physically visit the building area.
In addition, the technology integrates an infrared camera that provides a real-time view of building and implementation activities, Enel said.
The company currently operates over 7812 MW of renewable installed capacity in Spain, including 4711 MW of traditional hydro, 2362 MW of wind, 657 MW of solar, 79 MW of mini-hydro and 3 MW of other sources.
