Haiti - Technology : All the details on the construction of the largest solar power plant in the country
On July 21 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-33563-haiti-technology-a-french-firm-will-design-install-and-operate-12-mw-of-solar-energy-in-caracol.html took place the signing ceremony of the construction contract for the largest solar power plant in Haiti at the Caracol Industrial Park (PIC) of 12 MW (Megawatts) in total

This contract was signed by the Ministry of Economy and Finance and the Wineco-Siemens – Living Energy Group for a total amount of just over 17 million dollars (17,199,049.65 USD)

It should be noted that this work is financed by the resources of the program "Improvement of Access to Electricity in Haiti" (AMACEH) which includes a total envelope of 38 million dollars financed by the Inter-American Bank (IDB) up to 31.5 million USD and by the American Development Agency (USAID) up to 6.5 million USD.

These 16-month works are implemented by the Technical Execution Unit of the Ministry of Finance, which benefits from the technical support of the Energy Unit of the Ministry of Public Works and the National Authority for Regulation of Energy Sector (ANARSE).

These are 2 solar power plants totaling 12 MW which will be built of 8 and 4 MW respectively. These 2 power plants will have a battery storage system for frequency regulation and transformation into alternative electricity.

The 8 MW plant will be connected to the internal grid of the PIC providing electricity based on renewable energies. This major change will allow the UTE to move forward in its strategy of making the PIC more environmentally friendly and will contribute to strengthening the competitiveness of the Park thanks to a significant reduction in the cost of the kilowatt/hour.

The 4 MW plant will supply electricity to neighboring communities outside the Park through the private concessionaire of TEP. The photovoltaic power produced by the 8 MW plant and not consumed by the PIC will be purchased by the thermal plant in order to save fuel, thus reducing operating costs.

The main beneficiaries of the project will therefore be the customers of the Caracol Industrial Park, to whom electricity will be offered at a lower cost, and the neighboring communities. This project will also make it possible to engage a little more in a socially and environmentally responsible approach. The production of electricity by a photovoltaic module does not cause any pollution.
