Below we explain the first five largest plants in the world, will there be any from Spain among them?
Bhadla Solar Park.
This park has 2,245 MW and is located in the Bhadla Solar Power Park in Rajasthan. In March 2020, a 300 megawatt project was signed that completed the park and made it the largest in the world. Best Solar Panel Company in Pakistan The projects that have been carried out in that park have always been through various companies and with public-private partnerships. This park is also characterized by the fact that it has registered record prices on different occasions during competitive auctions.
Pavagada Solar Park
It has 2,050 MW and is located in India. It has a total area of 53 km² in Pavagada Taluk, Tumkur district, Karnataka. An investment of 2.1 billion dollars was estimated to build 2 GW of capacity. Karnataka Solar Power Development Corporation Ltd used the ‘plug and play’ model to complete the park. This model consists of a company acquiring blocks of land, obtaining government legalizations to generate solar energy, and awarding contracts to companies that produce energy through auctions.
Tengger Desert Solar Park
It has a capacity of 1,547 MW and was installed in the Tengger desert, in Zhongwei, Ningxia province, China. Solar Energy in Pakistan This project began in 2012 and was not completed until 2015, however, it was not connected to the grid until 2016. This solar plant is known as the Great Solar Wall since it occupies an area of 1,200 km², 3.2% of the surface of the desert where it is.
Benban Solar Park
This solar park located near the Aswan dam, approximately 650 km south of Cairo, has a capacity of 1,650 Mwp which corresponds to an annual production of 3.8 Twh. It is subdivided into 41 4-row parcels and occupies a total area of 37.2 km². The construction of the Benban Solar Park is framed within the goal of generating 20% of electricity from renewable energies by 2022.
Noor Abu Dhabi
Noor Abu Dhabi is the cheapest solar plant in the world. It has 3.2 million solar panels and installed power of 1,177 MW that has been possible thanks to the consortium formed between Marubeni and Jinko Solar. This project will stop emitting one million tons of CO2, which is equivalent to the emissions of 200,000 cars for one year.
EXTRA! Nunez de Balboa
Spain’s Núñez de Balboa photovoltaic plant is among the 20 largest solar installations in the world. It has 500 Mwp of installed capacity and energy is generated for 250,000 people. Solar Panel in Pakistan This project is the largest in Europe and avoids the emission of 215,000 tons of CO2 per year. It occupies about 1,000 hectares where the 1,430,000 solar panels are located.
