Photovoltaic systems at the Sagres Promontory

Commissioned by the Portuguese Ministry of Culture, the project involves the installation of a compact 18 kW solar generator and solar panels.
 

The electricity will then be sold to EDP (Energias de Portugal).

The system includes:

  • 72 solar panels ("Open Renewables 240" model, manufactured in Portugal)
  • one inverter
  • a single metering system for all the electrical interconnections

Business model: "turnkey" project.

Specific challenges related to this project:

  • The site is located on a peninsula and subject to extremely heavy winds: the system was assembled in INOX 316L stainless steel and reinforced in order to withstand maritime conditions.
  • This is a cultural heritage site commemorating the location where Portuguese caravels set sail during the Age of Discovery. The system and its installation were designed to minimise any impact on the local panorama.
