A new solar project in Miroslava, 400 kilometres north of Bucharest, has been powered with 97 dual axis trackers produced by Mecasolar (Mecanizados Solares SL) from Fustiñana, Spain, the company said in a press release. One of the biggest photovoltaic power plants in the country will be connected to the grid at the end of June, the company said.

The power plant, which is expected to have an annual solar power output of 1.7 GWh and to save 850 tons of carbon-dioxide equivalent emissions, features 97 of 10.31 kW 2-Axis trackers and more than 4,170 photovoltaic modules. The devices are capable of increasing photovoltaic solar energy production by more than 35%, when compared to a fixed installation, the press release said. This maximizes profits by reducing the investment in solar panels, the company added.

Mecasolar added it expects to strengthen its presence in Central Europe, stressing that the renewable energy market is expanding, with good prospects for solar energy.
