Ingeteam has signed four new PV Operation and Maintenance contracts in Panama, the United Kingdom, Honduras and Uruguay, opening up new markets for the company in the latter two countries.
In this way, Ingeteam has extended its coverage in the Latin American market and is a leader in the provision of Operation and Maintenance services with 1.9 GW. In this region, Ingeteam also boasts a leadership position with regard to the number of installed PV inverters and wind power converters.
As far as the United Kingdom is concerned, the company was already performing operation and maintenance work at a number of facilities and has supplied PV inverters to one of the country’s largest PV plants, located in the County of Lincolnshire. The company has also supplied protection and control equipment to transmission substations at the PV plants of Everley and Canworthy (which came into operation in 2014), in addition to the supply of equipment for electricity companies assessed by the Energy Networks Association (ENA) of the United Kingdom.
The PV plants located in Cholueta (southern Honduras), Salto (northeastern Uruguay), Veraguas (northern Panama) and Shrewsbury (northern United Kingdom), will prevent the emission of more than 2 million tons of C02into the atmosphere and will power 182,500 homes.
Furthermore, these contracts will make it possible to increase Ingeteam’s headcount in each of these countries in which a contract has been won. Specifically, a total of 20 new jobs have been created for electromechanical maintenance technicians and engineers.
Ingeteam maintains a total of 6.5 GW of installed power in renewable energy generating plants (solar and wind power), and has subsidiaries in the following countries: USA, Mexico, Panama, Brazil, Chile, South Africa, India, China, Philippines, Australia, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic and Romania.
