WASHINGTON--Martifer Solar (http://www.martifersolar.com/), subsidiary of Martifer SGPS, has just concluded two photovoltaic projects in Spain, in a total of 4.26 MWp. The company was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of the projects, a photovoltaic park of 3.8 MWp in Lorca, Murcia, and a rooftop installation of 460 kWp in Toledo, being in charge, from now on, of the Operation and Maintenance (O&M) services of both installations.


The Lorca plant, owned by third parties, occupies an area of 4.5 hectares and it consists of about 15,800 modules, which are installed on MPrime (http://www.mprimesolar.com/) solar trackers, Smartracker® technology. With a production capacity of 7.145 GWh/year, it will be able to avoid approximately 1,700 tons of CO2 emissions per year, generating enough electricity for the consumption of over 6,000 inhabitants.

The 460-kWp installation was built in the rooftop of the Prilux Group (http://www.grupoprilux.com/) facilities, in an area of 7,500 m2. With over 1,800 modules installed in fixed structures, it has a production capacity of 0.67 GWh/year, an amount of energy equivalent to the consumption of about 500 inhabitants. This photovoltaic system will avoid approximately 160 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

"These projects reflect the excellent work that Martifer Solar always carried out in Spain, the country where we have already installed 60 MW. Although this is a mature market, which has been facing many changes in the sector regulation, we still deserve the trust of our customers and partners, being known for our experience and quality, in every business segment", says Jesus Pacheco, Martifer Solar's COO for Spain.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
