Construction of a 6MW photovoltaic power station at Timna
The 85-dunam project, situated on the grounds of the Timna copper mines, will have an output of 6 megawatts, to be generated by some 24,000 solar panels anchored in the ground. The station will supply the national power grid with more than 10 million kilowatt-hours a year of clean energy for a period of 20 years.
This project is a joint venture of Shikun & Binui Solaria and the Soltec Renewable Energies of Spain, which has wide experience building solar energy parks in Europe.
The power station is expected to go online during 2012.
