We continue our consolidation in Latin America with the construction of two new PV Parks in Colombia.
After the construction of the Canal del Dique photovoltaic plant for Surtigas in 2021, the Enerland Group will soon begin the construction of two new PV Parks in Colombia . Both executions, La Tolúa (26.19 MW) and Tierra Linda (12.71 MW), are expected to be commissioned at the end of this year. On an area of land that exceeds 68 hectares, a total of 72,720 bifacial solar panels will be installed on a tracker-type structure. For its execution, 160 direct local jobs will be created. In addition, approximately 60 indirect jobs will be created to support the local development of the area. Additionally, for the construction of these two new photovoltaic plants in Colombia, the Enerland Group has carried out technical training for personnel in the area with the aim of incorporating them into mechanical assembly. Once completed, both parks will generate an average of 77.2 GWh of renewable energy. This energy is equivalent to that needed to supply the consumption of 57,314 homes. Likewise, it will prevent the emission of 24,015 tons of polluting gases into the atmosphere per year, contributing to the country’s sustainable development. These two photovoltaic plants in Colombia join Enerland’s international portfolio on the continent, which currently has a total of 1,000 MW under development and 145 MW under construction.
“A year ago we were building our first 5.5 MWp solar park. Now, we are facing this new challenge, to build more than 38 MWp spread over two different locations. For this, we have been preparing thoroughly for some time and creating a fairly solid multidisciplinary work group. With all our expectations placed on it, we hope to execute both projects with the success that precedes us and expand our presence in Colombia, consolidating ourselves as one of the main EPCists in the country” Juan Pablo Garcia Silva – Director of Engineering and Quality – Enerland Group Colombia.
