Soltec Supplies 367 MW of its SFOne Tracker in Lorca (Murcia) to X-ELIO

The SFOne tracker contributes to reducing the visual impact of plants due to its smaller design

Murcia, Spain, 18 April 2024. Soltec, a vertically integrated company dedicated to photovoltaic projects with solar trackers, will supply 367 MW of its SFOne tracker for a project by X-ELIO. The photovoltaic plant will be located in the municipality of Lorca, in the Region of Murcia.

This plant will feature Soltec's SFOne trackers. This single-row, dual-axis tracker stands out for its high competitiveness and low profile, which minimizes visual impact and maximizes energy efficiency. The project will have a total of 5,948 trackers. In addition to supplying the plant, scheduled to begin at the end of February, Soltec has contributed to both the field testing of the project and the technical definition of the plant.
It is estimated that this plant will create more than 300 direct jobs during its commissioning, prioritizing the hiring of workers and SMEs from the area. The investment in this project amounts to approximately 270 million euros in its development.
"As Murcians, it is an honor for Soltec to contribute to the decarbonization of the Murcian economy and to be part of the largest photovoltaic plant developed in the Region of Murcia. Additionally, collaborating with such important companies as X-ELIO is a pleasure for us. The construction of this solar plant not only represents a step forward in decarbonization but will also have a very positive impact on the local economy of the area," said Raúl Morales, CEO of Soltec.
The installation of this solar plant will contribute to avoiding the emission of around 148,328 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere during the first year. Likewise, this project will generate 748,000 MWh of 100% clean and sustainable energy during its first year and will supply the annual consumption equivalent to 215,000 households.
