Enertis Applus will provide engineering services to a solar plant in the Dominican Republic


Enertis Applus, a global consulting, engineering and quality control company, will provide property engineering services to the Haina Electricity Generating Company (EGE Haina) in its Parque Solar Sajoma project, a photovoltaic plant with an installed capacity of 80 MW located in the Dominican Republic, as reported by the company.

As part of the services it will provide during the pre-construction phase, Enertis Applus will complete the detailed engineering review prepared by the project engineering and construction company (EPC). With this, the conformity of the design and construction plans, as well as the specifications of the equipment, with the required regulations and technical codes and with the requirements of the long-term power purchase agreement and the EPC contract will be verified.

During the construction phase, which will last approximately twelve months, Enertis Applus will supervise the activities of the EPC contractor on site, ensuring compliance with technical specifications, quality and the project schedule.

Enertis Applus will assign a multidisciplinary team of engineers who will work in collaboration with the team of back-office specialists, with the aim of guaranteeing a good execution and coordination of the installation.

"We continue to advance in the provision of our engineering services in the Dominican Republic, a country that has high potential to increase the penetration of photovoltaic solar projects, providing our clients with a comprehensive property engineering service that is essential for the success of their projects", commented Álvaro Velasco, Regional Manager of the northern region of LATAM at Enertis Applus.

EGE Haina is a public-private Dominican company dedicated to electricity generation, which is developing a new solar park, which will extend over a 140-hectare plot of land in the municipality of San José de las Matas, in the province of Santiago. This project is made up of 123,100 bifacial photovoltaic modules and will produce 148,000 MWh of clean energy annually, enough to supply the demand of some 60,000 homes each year.
