The solar photovoltaic power station of Arnedo. A reference

16 February 2017

In 2007 Grupo T-Solar decided to install one of the largest photovoltaic solar power plants in the Iberian peninsula, an ambitious and pioneering project in Europe.

After analyzing different locations, T-Solar opted for 70 hectares of land located at kilometer 5 of the road from Arnedo to Calahorra in La Rioja.

In February 2008 construction began on the park. The project required a large logistical deployment to receive and ship to Arnedo supplies from three different continents (Asia, Europe and America) From Asia the solar panels were supplied, from America came expert professionals in the installation of solar parks and from different parts of Europe Arrived at Arnedo all the necessary elements to carry out in a record time an installation of avant-garde and reference in the sector with very high quality standards.

The great coordination between logistics managers and technical managers, as well as installers and suppliers, made it possible for the plant to be operational in less than 6 months. An outstanding performance where the criteria of sustainability and respect for the environment prevailed.

Up to 172,000 installed solar modules and 360 kilometers of steel profile were used. A unique work that has allowed the installation of 34.19 MWp megawatts of power generating 49,936,510 kWh / year of energy equivalent to the electrical consumption of 11,451 homes and avoids the emission into the atmosphere of 17,877 tons per year of CO2.
