The photovoltaic installation will consist of two solar plants of 43.5 MWp each, totaling a capacity of 87 MWp. It will be located in the province of Palencia and will be built on an area of approximately 190 Ha.
The installation will consist of the most advanced solar technology, with 241,667 polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic modules that will occupy a net catchment area of 468,833 sqm. The modules will be mounted on structures with one axis tracking system and the produced direct current will be transformed to alternating current by central inverters of 2.5 MW capacity.
The expected specific production is 1,884 kWh/kWp, to obtain an average annual production of 164 GWh, equivalent to an average annual consumption in Spain of 50,617 households.
The energy evacuation will be carried out through 30/132 kV elevator transformers, located in high voltage substations in each plant. The substations will have a collector/elevator configuration. The 132 high voltage lines starting from the plants will connect in a common substation, where will connect in a promoters’ common 132 kV substation. In this substation the voltage will be increased to 400 kV and will connect to the substation’s renewable position of the transport grid (400 kV) through a high voltage line.
