2 April, 2019

  • Spanish power company Iberdrola inaugurates its mega-sized Núñez de Balboa complex in the municipalities of Usagre, Hinojosa del Valle and Bienvenida, in the Badajoz region of western Spain.
  • The project, which occupies over 2,400 acres (1,000 hectares) of land, has a power capacity of 500 MWp.

The Valencia-based company Power Electronics will be participating, with its HEC V1500 solar inverter, in what is to be Iberdrola’s largest solar project in the world: the mega-sized Núñez de Balboa, complex in the municipalities of Usagre, Hinojosa del Valle and Bienvenida, in the Badajoz region of western Spain. The project, which occupies over 2,400 acres (1,000 hectares) of land, has a power capacity of 500 MWp (391 MW of maximum power when connected to the grid), and is designed to supply power to a local population of some 250,000 people; more than the populations of the nearby cities of Cáceres and Badajoz. The facility, which is Europe’s biggest-ever photovoltaic project, is set to come online in 2020.

The plant, which is to be equipped with 115x HEC V1500 solar inverters supplied by Power Electronics, will have the benefits of a central, modular solar inverter at its disposal, with the functionalities of both central and string configuration, along with MV Skid, a turnkey solution with all the medium-voltage equipment already built in. The power station will have a maximum output of 3,500 kVA.
