April 18, 2013 - Martifer Solar Hellas has completed the construction of four photovoltaic parks with a total capacity of 4.5MW in Greece, in the Preveza and Pirgos regions, continuing its strategy to develop and construct large-scale photovoltaic systems for investors.
The four plants, with capacities between 777kWp and 2MWp, cover a total area of 97,000 sq. m. and have been connected to the grid during this last quarter. The produced energy, around 6.65GWh/year, is the equivalent to the average energy consumption of 5,000 inhabitants, and will prevent the emission of 5,850 tons of carbon dioxide per year into the atmosphere.
Martifer Solar Hellas was responsible for providing EPC turnkey services, including the commissioning of the projects, which are installed on fixed structures with polycrystalline modules utilizing both string and central inverters. The construction for each project was performed in record timing, with each system completed in less than a month; Martifer Solar Hellas will continue to manage the O&M Service of these plants.
Theodore Gitzos, General Manager of Martifer Solar Hellas, mentioned, "I am very satisfied that under adverse weather conditions and strict timeframes, our team was more than capable of completing these four projects, proving yet again the enormous capabilities of our company."
