Martifer and Gauss fire up 39 MW Aura #Solar plant in Mexico

Martifer Solar and Gauss Energia inaugurated the 39 MW Aura Solar photovoltaic power project in a ceremony attended by President Enrique Pena Nieto of Mexico. Located in La Paz, Baja California Sur, the plant has more than 132,000 Suntech solar PV panels installed in ground-mounted structures with single-axis solar trackers. Gauss Energia developed the project, which was funded by local development bank Nafin, International Finance Corp. and Corporacion Aura Solar. Martifer Solar was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of the plant, and will provide operations and maintenance services. Martifer says the project’s 20-year power purchase agreement is the first contract between a private company and Mexico’s Comision Federal de Electricidad. The country’s target is to generate 35% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2026.
