The project in Sao Gonçalo is the largest we have ever worked in the country, reinforcing our position as Brazil's leading manufacturer and supplier for PV plants. In addition, thanks to the installation of bifacial trackers, we will be able to produce more energy optimizing the space and reducing the installation time", explains Héctor Sánchez, Sales Manager Brazil.
Soltec will hire more than 300 new local people during the installation phase and around 15 permanent personnel during operation and maintenance.
