Moura, Spain [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] For the first phase of the solar plant that ACCIONA Energia will build in Moura (Portugal), the company signed a contract with the Chinese company Yingli for the supply of photovoltaic (PV) panels of 42 megawatt-peak (MWp) capacity.The agreement, which takes into account the extension of the supply for a second phase of the Moura PV plant, was signed in the head office of ACCIONA Energia by Fermin Gembero, General Manager of the renewables company and Liangsheng, General Manager of the Chinese group. This project contributes to the PV sector’s growth, which exceeds 40% a year, with forecasts indicating a tripling of accumulated capacity in Europe in five years. ACCIONA has put 35% of grid-connected PV power in Spain into service. It has installed — or is installing — more than 25 megawatts (MW), most of it in ‘solar gardens’ (groupings of individual owners on common land), an initiative in which it has been a pioneer. ACCIONA is currently constructing a 64 MW thermoelectric solar plant in the Nevada desert, said to be the largest built in the world in the last 15 years.
