Spanish energy giant Iberdrola has submitted several proposals to hybridize some of its wind farms in Spain with solar power plants.
According to the Spanish Official Journal, the company plans to build a photovoltaic power plant with a capacity of up to 33.3 MW in the municipality of El Almendro, in the province of Huelva. It already operates a 22 MW wind farm in the province, which is located in the southern region of Andalusia.
The company also intends to build a 49.5 MW solar farm through the municipalities of Vara del Rey, Sisante and Tébar, in the same province. It will link this capacity to a similar sized wind facility it owns in the region.
In addition, Iberdrola plans to couple a 57.6 MW solar project with a 40 MW wind farm in the province of Huelva, covering the municipalities of Ayamonte, San Silvestre de Guzmán and Villablanca.
Finally, he plans to build a 45.5 MW solar farm in El Almendro. This project will be linked to a hybrid solar wind complex which is expected to have a capacity of 76 MW.
The company is currently building one of the largest wind-solar hybrid projects in the world in Port Augusta, South Australia. It is investing 500 million Australian dollars (364.2 million euros) in this installation. It will combine 210 MW of wind power with 107 MW of solar photovoltaic.
The company aims to start commercial operations in Port Augusta this year. The project will involve suppliers from all over the world.
