The Soco substation and the Pimentel photovoltaic plant will be the next projects of the Spanish firm in the Caribbean country
SÓLIDA is awarded two new engineering contracts in the Dominican Republic
SÓLIDA has been awarded the detailed engineering of the Soco 34.5/138 kV substation, which will allow the evacuation of the energy produced by the 50 MW photovoltaic plant of the same name, in the province of San Pedro de Macorís, in the Dominican Republic.
The scope includes the design of the civil works, electromechanical assembly, control and protection of the substation, as well as technical support for the procedures with ETED, the Dominican Electricity Transmission Company.
In parallel, SÓLIDA has begun engineering and technical assistance work for the construction of the 1.5 MW Pimentel photovoltaic plant in the province of San Francisco de Macorís.
These contracts strengthen SÓLIDA’s leadership in the Dominican Republic, where it has already participated in projects as diverse as San Pedro Bioenergy biomass or the Guzmancito and Matafongo wind farms, the latter recently sold by Inveravante to InterEnergy.
The Dominican Government’s roadmap establishes that by 2030 renewable energies must represent at least 25% of electricity generation.
