The Photovoltaic (PV) Park is located at Tseri and is built in the area of the existing High Voltage Sub-Station. Its' nominal capacity is 3MWp and currently is the largest PV Park in Cyprus. The Park is another EAC activity in the area of Renewable Energy Sources.
This project has been materialized under the tendering procedure published by the "Special Fund for Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Energy Conservation (Econ)" in 2012 for the sale of energy generated by PV Parks of a total capacity of 50MW. The Park is comprised of 12.000 solar panels and covers approximately 4,6 acres of land. It is expected to generate 5.000MWh per year whilst 3.600 tones of Carbon Dioxide emissions (CO2) per year will be avoided.
The Park has been designed in a way to minimize as much as possible the environmental impact. The PV panels' support system is based on directly buried galvanized poles without the need of any concrete foundations reducing significantly the extent of civil works.
Following the licensing of the PV Park by all competent authorities, the erection works commenced in January 2014 and completed at the end of April 2014. The EPC Contractor was AKTOR ATE/Photovoltaic Branch, which has an overall experience of more than 400MW.
The electrical energy selling price is set to 8,6 €cent/kWh. As per the Tender conditions, EAC will be paying the difference between the cost avoidance and the selling price of electrical energy that is generated from the PV Park, to the "Special Fund for Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Energy Conservation (Econ)".
