The solar tracker and fixed structures manufacturer reached agreements last January with 2 major French companies, for the construction of various projects located in the regions of Aquitaine, Languedoc-Roussillon, Champagne-Ardenne and Occitania during the first semester of this year. These projects were awarded by the French government in the CRE 4.1 and CRE 4.2 auctions.

In total, these plants will avoid the emission of about 50,000 T of CO2 anually for 30 years.

The largest project occupies an area of 37 and counts with 357 units of STI-H250TM DUAL-ROW trackers, and a power of 17 Mwp installed on an area of 37 hectares. It has been built on a former NATO military base that now belongs to the Department of Aube, and will produce power for more than 8,000 homes.

Another project has been built on an old landfill, and has required the development of a foundation solution adapted to the particularities of the project, on a surface of 6 hectares and 4 MWp of installed power will produce energy for about 2,200 homes.

On the other hand, the last two projects have the STI-F5TM bipost structure, are the first projects in France that use double-glazed bifacial modules and have required a specific adaptation of the structure minimizing shading on the back of the modules.

It should be noted that several of these projects have a participatory financing formula. Through a Crowdfunding strategy in diverse platforms allowed the inhabitants of the neighboring departments to collaborate on the financing of the projects.

Abengoa, the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors, has been awarded by the Oman Electricity Transmission Company (OTEC) the construction of two new electric substations and the associated transmission lines in Northeast Oman.

Abengoa will be responsible for the construction, supply, assembly, and commissioning of two new substations 132/33kV, one located in Samad and the other in Sinaw. The construction project is expected to last for two years. Subcontracting of local businesses for specific tasks will generate local employment in the area throughout the construction period.

Since 2012, Abengoa is present in Oman, where it is currently developing the substation Al Dreez for OETC as well.

With this new project, Abengoa consolidates its position in the Middle Eastern market, keeping its leadership in the electric transmission industry with more than 26,000 km and almost 300 substations around the world in the past 11 years.

Abengoa, the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors, has been issued a Letter of Award (LOA) by Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) to carry out the engineering and construction work for a 220 MW cogeneration plant at EGA’s Al Taweelah facilities in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (UAE).

The LOA enables Abengoa to undertake preparatory works worth approximately $50 million comprising the mobilization, the basic and detailed engineering and the purchase of long lead items. The overall contract is worth approximately $215 million.

This work is part of EGA’s growth development strategy. The plant that Abengoa will construct will have a capacity of 220 MW and will generate up to 600 tons of steam per hour. Abengoa will be responsible for the engineering, design and construction of the power and steam plant, which is expected to create 750 jobs during the construction phase.

This will be the first cogeneration plant that Abengoa has developed in the United Arab Emirates, effectively positioning the company as one of the major players in the energy sector in this region. Abengoa has previously constructed a 100 MW solar plant in Abu Dhabi, the largest in the Middle East.

Enel Green Power (EGP) has completed and connected to the grid Melowind wind farm, its first ever power plant in Uruguay. The 50 MW facility is located in the Cerro Largo area, about 320 kilometres from capital city Montevideo.

Enel Green Power invested approximately 98 million US dollars in the construction of Melowind. The plant is able to generate more than 200 GWh of electricity a year – equal to the consumption needs of about 74,000 local households – while avoiding the annual emission of more than 62,000 tonnes of CO2.

Melowind’s 47% load factor is equivalent to more than 4,100 hours of generation a year. The electricity produced by Melowind will be sold to the state-owned power company UTE (Administración Nacional de Usinas y Trasmisiones Eléctricas), which manages the transmission, distribution and sale of electricity in Uruguay, under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) that was signed prior to construction of the plant.

Uruguay has an installed capacity of approximately 3.7 GW, with about 66% of output being generated from renewable resources.
