May 27, 2008 -- Datamonitor

Spanish renewable energy firm Acciona has stated that the 46MW photovoltaic plant it is building in Amareleja, Portugal, is 66% complete and is expected to be connected to the grid later in 2008.

This facility will produce 90 million kWh per year, equivalent to the electricity consumption of 30,000 Portuguese homes. The facility is equipped with 2,520 solar trackers which support 262,080 photovoltaic (PV) modules.

Acciona noted that, to date 30.41MW of electrical capacity has been installed, which is approximately 66% of the total planned capacity. Installation work is expected to continue through summer 2008. The facility is already feeding electricity to the grid from the 3.18MW capacity which became operational at the end of 2007.
