The total capacity of Coremas is 300 MWp
Array STI Norland, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of solar trackers and fixed-tilt structures, has concluded the third phase of the Coremas solar plant, located in the Brazilian municipality of identical name. The company is currently preparing the supply of the next five project phases.
Array STI Norland’s single-axis solar trackers were purchased by Rio Alto Energias Renováveis, a pioneering Brazilian company within the solar energy industry specialized in the development, funding, and operation of large-scale solar parks for free or regulated markets. Rio Alto employs 800 professionals, most of them are currently allocated to the Coremas project.
Placed in the state of Paraiba, the 300-MWp PV plant will be equipped with a total of 3,153 units of the STI-H250 dual-row trackers. Besides, 254 STI-H1250 centralized trackers were installed in 2017 in the first and second phases of Coremas.
“This project revolutionized the solar power market in Brazil and opened the door to the large projects we run today. The trust placed on Array STI Norland and our products was paramount in allowing our company to expand and grow to where it is today,” explains Javier Reclusa, CEO of Array STI Norland in Brazil. The company is the largest manufacturer in this country, where it had one of the highest expansion rates from 2017 to 2019, with exponential growth of 1,200%.
For Edmond Farhat, CEO at Rio Alto, the new project phase implies “an important steppingstone for solar energy growth in Brazil and proves the relevance and market share this power source is gaining in the country.”
