Power Electronics will supply its HEC V1500 solar inverters for two photovoltaic plants in Brazil, Sobral I (30MW) and Sertao I (30MW) located in the northern region of Piauí. Both plants are expected to be operational in the second half of 2017, providing an output of 154GWh per year.
Gas Natural Fenosa, the majority shareholder of these plants, consolidates its presence in Brazil after acquiring through its subsidiary Green Power Generation (GPG), a majority (85%) of these two plants from Gransolar (GRS).
Power Electronics continues to grow in the South American market, in this case in Brazil, where it already has a long experience in the industrial sector since 2010 with the opening of its first office in São Paulo.
In just five years Gransolar has grown into an international PV solar plant developer, operator and EPC contractor, with its own monitoring and laboratory testing facilities. With over 40 plants put into operation in Spain and Italy, Gransolar is expanding into the US, Portugal, France, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Chile and Mexico. Recent diversification into Wind and Biomass projects herald a new phase in the company’s evolution.
