After its inception in July 2015, the plant has received the certificate of completed project.
The Honduran electricity authority classifies the plant as “the most efficient and best managed in the region so far”.
he 61.48 MWp solar power plant had a 100 M$ budget and will generate 109 million kWh per year.
Aura II will avoid the emission into the atmosphere of 40,000 tons of CO2.
The Solar Photovoltaic Power Plant Aura II in Honduras, built by Isolux Corsan, has received the certificate of completed project from Energía Cinco Estrellas S.A. de C.V. after having passed all its requirements and those of the National Electricity Company (ENEE.). In addition, Isolux Corsan will be responsible for operating and maintaining the plant in the coming years. The Company is already operating the plant with both Spanish and Honduran personnel.
The photovoltaic plant was first connected to the Honduran grid July 31, 2015 and has since become one of the most efficient and stable high-voltage grid-supply plants of the country. The Honduran electricity authority considers the Aura II plant “the most efficient and best managed in the region so far.”The construction of Aura II, the first solar photovoltaic project by Isolux Corsan in Honduras, had a 100 M$ budget and has been completed in just 7 months. With a peak output of 61.48 MWp, the plant, located in the region of Choluteca, will generate 109 million kWh per year, equivalent to supply clean energy to more than 80,000 Honduran families, avoiding the emission into the atmosphere of 40,000 annual tons of CO2.
The project has been financed by private investors from Mexico and Honduras, and by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Mexican bank Bancomext and the German development agency DEG.Developed by the Mexican company Gauss Energia, Aura II covers an area of 145 hectares and has more than 200,000 photovoltaic modules installed. The solar plant has provided employment to more 700 people at the time of maximum workload.The energy produced by the solar park will be delivered to the ENEE through its interconnection with the Santa. Lucia substation. The energy trading contract has a 20 years span.Isolux Corsan is one the leading companies of the world developing solar photovoltaic plants. The Company’s has total installed capacity of 740 MW.
