Suntech and a+f Complete Two Spanish Solar Power Plants (8.5 and 7.4 MW)

Suntech Power has recently completed two solar power plants in Spain in collaboration with Wuerzburg, Germany based a+f GmbH, a subsidiary of the GILDEMEISTER group, whose high performance SunCarrier single axis tracker is a market leader.

Suntech supplied approximately 50% of all modules utilized in an 8.5MWp solar plant in Alange and a 7.4MWp solar plant in Alconera.

The modules were installed on over 450 a+f SunCarrier trackers, which increase the power efficiency of the solar systems by up to 32% above that of fixed mounted solar systems. In total the two solar plants will produce enough energy to power around 9,300 households and save carbon dioxide emissions of approximately 19,000 tons per year.

a+f's Managing Director, Dr. Rico Wojanowski said, "Our advanced SunCarrier tracking technology is perfectly matched with Suntech's internationally acclaimed high output solar modules. The combination of these two products enabled us to efficiently use the land available and develop a high power output solar solution that can satisfy the energy needs of thousands of households."


This is in addition ot the 18 MW PV project that went on-line two weeks ago...

and a 3 MW project that went online in September...

and another 8 MW project underway near Toledo...

"something" is afoot here....
