International Energy Investments Group, a Dublin, Ireland-based company that invests in the renewable energy sector, has inaugurated two ground-mounted solar power plants in France, representing an investment of 15 million euros.
The joint facility, which is situated in Ferrassieres, near Avignon, in the Rhone-Alpes region, consists of two separate photovoltaic power plants that have a total nominal output of 3 MW. Co-developed on the investment side with another Irish investment group, the power plants have been developed and built by SOLON Investments, a SOLON SE subsidiary.
Nearly 14,500 SOLON Blue 230 polycrystalline solar modules have been used in the construction of the facility, which is located on the site of two former French army launchpads for intercontinental nuclear ballistic missiles.
