Date: 2018-02-09
Acciona Energia reports construction is underway on the 404MW Puerto Libertad photovoltaic solar project in Sonora, Mexico. The project is a 50-50 joint venture with the Mexican company Tuto Energy, a subsidiary of the group BioFields. The project is slated to be fully operational early in 2019.

Of the project's total capacity, 229MW will be purchased by the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE). Another 114MW comes under a PPA between the consortium that owns the project and the company Tuto Energy Trading. The power from this capacity will be sent to the installations of a major Mexican industrial group. Energy produced by the remaining 61MW will be sold on the wholesale electricity market.

The facility will incorporate 1,222,800 polycrystalline silicon panels mounted on horizontal tracker systems and will generate approximately 963GWh of power -- sufficient to cover the electricity demand of 583,000 Mexican homes. Acciona Energia will carry out the turnkey construction of the Mexico plant as the EPC provider. It will also has a 2-year operation and maintenance (O&M) contract.
