25 March 2021 – Soltec Power Holdings has signed a contract with Elecnor to supply solar trackers for a 359 MW project in Brazil. The contract covers the supply of bifacial trackers for a project that Elecnor will develop in the Pirapora region in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil.
This project, which was already included in the company’s pipeline for 2021, increases Soltec’s operational indicators (backlog). According to data at the end of December 2020, Soltec Industrial had a backlog of €190 million and a pipeline valued at €2,665 million. With this transaction, Soltec Power Holdings increases its operating backlog in its Soltec Industrial business line.
