GE and MPX, a division of EBX Group, have entered into an agreement that is expected to double the output of MPX's first solar power plant in Brazil.
Currently, the plant in Taua, Fortaleza, Ceara state, has 4,680 solar panels generating 1 MW of energy. With this new expansion, GE will provide an additional 1 MW solar power plant, which includes the company's thin-film panels, Brilliance inverters, transformers, and SunIQ monitoring and control system.
The first MPX solar power plant in Brazil covers an area of 12,000 square meters. The project already has received a $5.8 million investment, including approximately $695,000 from the Inter-American Development Bank, GE notes.
