Martifer finishes 5 MW park in Cape Verde

Martifer Solar and the Ministry of Economy, Growth and Competitiveness of Cape Verde (MECC) has inaugurated today the second of two solar parks contracted in January.
The Prime Minister of Cape Verde, Dr. José Maria das Neves, presided over the inauguration ceremony.

Installed on fixed structures, this park, located in Santiago Island, is a turnkey project entirely developed by Martifer Solar and uses PV panels produced in its own plant in Oliveira de Frades, Portugal.

With an estimated production of 8,120 MWh/year, the park occupies an area of 13 hectares and has 5 MW peak power. This is, so far, the biggest PV plant in the African continent.

In October, the Government of Cape Verde inaugurated an installation in Sal Island, also built by Martifer Solar, with 2.5 MW peak power with capacity to expand up to 5 MWp.

The two parks will ensure the production of 4% of the total electricity
