Ecostream to Build First Phase of 60 MW Solar Park in Spain

Ecostream Spain SL has been awarded a solar photovoltaic (PV) system contract by Globasol, a Madrid-based sustainable energy company created in 2005 by a group of investors led by the Hidalgo family — owners of Globalia Corporacion Empresarial.

This turnkey system planned for Murcia, Spain, which will be designed and built by Ecostream, a subsidiary of the international Econcern group, with offices in Barcelona, Madrid and Seville, will have a total capacity of 14 megawatts (MW) in the first phase of a total expected generating capacity plant of 60 MW. Construction of the park will start in September and is expected to be fully operational in the second quarter of 2007. Encompassing 140 solar systems, each of which will generate 100 kilowatts (kW), this first phase will contain more than 83,000 solar modules from YingliSolar and TopSolar, both suppliers in China. Ecostream, known for quality and swift execution of large projects, will be the turnkey main contractor, and will use a multi-national project team. “The system has been contracted in just six months. All those involved worked extremely hard: from contracting modules and other components from our suppliers through to project engineering and licensing the project with the authorities,” said Alfredo Laiz, General Director Ecostream Spain. “We will continue to invest in the energy and sustainable tourism sectors in Murcia,” said Javier Hidalgo, General Director of the Globalia group. “We see solar energy as the best way to promote sustainable energy production, but will also make sure we treat the environment responsibly in everything that we do.”
