THE RECORD WAS CERTIFIED BY BUREAU VERITAS.
The new record was achieved in The Guañizuil II project, by the Norwegian Scatec and Equinor, which were awarded a 20-year PPA in the second phase of the third round (Round 2) of Argentina’s program for solar and renewable energy projects. large scale RenovAr.
The new world record for the assembly of solar panels was achieved in the Guañizuil II project in Argentina by installing 54,090 solar modules in less than 12 hours. This amounts to approximately 17.5 MW of the total capacity of the 117 MW solar plant.
To establish this achievement, 10 assembler teams were formed and the objective of the challenge was to install 4,950 solar panels per team. All teams reached the goal, while four teams managed to overcome their goal and installed even more solar panels.
Consulted by www.energiasrenovables.com.ar the engineer Alejandro Giordano, president of CIPSA SOLAR ARGENTINA, leading company in the assembly of solar parks in Argentina and Latin America, I highlight the great commitment and effort demonstrated by the entire team involved in the realization of this new milestone in the installation of large-scale solar panels.
The numbers are even more impressive if one considers that in one day, about 15% of the expected capacity of the solar park was installed. Once completed, it is estimated that the Argentine plant, Guañizuil II, will generate an annual production of 308 GWh, feeding renewable energy to 82,000 homes.
The solar plant covers an area greater than 380 soccer fields and will help prevent 107,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
The project is jointly owned with Equinor and a network connection is expected in the first quarter of 2020.
Solar panels were provided by Risen and solar trackers by Nextracker.
