CARTAXO SOLAR PARK - SECOND TO BE SUCCESSFULLY BROUGHT ONLINE IN PORTUAL.
With Cartaxo Solar Park, the second of WIRTGEN INVEST's six Portuguese solar parks was successfully connected to the power grid end of July 2020.
Built in the north of Lisbon the solar farm has a nominal output of 9.7 MWp produced by approximately 26,000 Suntech PV modules.
This means that together with the already connected solar park in Amareleja, Portugal can now generate almost 15,1 million kWh annually, which is enough to supply around 10,700 four-person households and save some 19,300 tonnes of CO2 per year.
The connection of the Cartaxo solar power plant to the grid marks the continuance of a series of six new solar parks in Portugal under the direction of WIRTGEN INVEST. It is expected that, in the coming weeks, the next project – the Ferreira solar park, with a nominal output of 46.4 MWp – will also be brought online.
