  • Brilen has announced it will get a 15.37 MW of solar PV capacity to generate power for self-consumption
  • The project will be built by Samca Group using 28,594 monocrystallines half cell solar modules
  • It will cover 25% electricity requirement of the Brilen/Novapet Industrial Complex

In the latest example of businesses warming up to solar PV technology for the economic and environmental gains it promises, Spanish polyester industrial yarn producer Brilen is to get a solar power system calling it the largest self-consumption PV plant in Spain. It claims this will also be one of the biggest such projects in Europe in this space.

To be built by Samca Group, the project will equip Brilen/Novapet Industrial Complex in Poligono Valle del Cinca in Barbastro with a total PV capacity of 15.37 MW. It will install 28,594 monocrystalline half cell solar modules on 24.1-hectare space.

Power generated by the modules will cover 25% of the electricity requirement of the industrial complex. Brilen is a Samca Group company.

The self-consumption solar PV space in Spain is expected to lead to annual installations of 400 MW, according to the Spanish PV association after the country’s Council of Ministers officially sanctioned Royal Decree-Law 15/2018 that encourages the model of self-consumption of power through decentralized systems (see Spain Approves Self-Consumption Of Power Decree).
