Puerto Errado 2 (PE2), a 30 MW solar thermal power station built by Novatec Solar using its proprietary solar field technology, has been completed and is in operation.
PE2's solar boiler includes a mirror surface of 302,000 square meters, making it the world's largest operational solar thermal power station based on linear Fresnel collector technology, according to Novatec Solar.
PE2's 30 MW electrical output is generated exclusively by solar power and will produce approximately 50 million kWh of electricity annually.
Novatec Solar served as the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the project and was responsible for the construction and commissioning of PE2. UTE Errado PE2, a TSK and OHL joint venture, built the balance of plant. A consortium of three European banks – Bayerische Landesbank, Commerzbank and Rabobank – arranged PE2's limited-recourse project finance debt funding in May 2011.
