GEONICA obtains the contract for the design, supply, installation, setup and maintenance of the Solar Irradiation and Meteorological Measurement System for the largest combined CSP+PV solar power plant in the world. The 950 MW solar hybrid project (700MW CSP & 250MW PV) fourth phase of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, is the largest single-site concentrated solar power plant in the world using a state-of-the-art combination of a central tower and parabolic trough concentrated solar power (CSP) technologies to collect energy from the sun.
SEMS-PV Solar Resource Measurement and Meteorology Stations for Benban Solar Park (Egypt), the world's largest photovoltaic project.
GEONICA has supplied the weather stations for several plants of the Benban Solar Park complex, a photovoltaic installation of a total of 1,650 MW located in the western desert in Benban (Egypt), which once completed will be the largest photovoltaic installation in the world. Benban Solar Park occupies an area of 37 km2 which is divided into 41 subplants assigned to different companies.
Solar Resource Measurement and Meteorology Stations for the largest photovoltaic project in Bolivia.
The two plants built by ELECNOR in consortium with the Bolivian company EMIAS, represent the largest photovoltaic project to date in Bolivia. The Uyuni photovoltaic solar plant has a capacity of 60 MW and Yunchará with 5 MW, and are located in the departments of Potosí and Tarija, respectively. GEONICA's solutions have been trusted to monitor the plants. The project as a whole is made up of four SEMS-PV stations that record and store all the solar irradiance measurements as well as all the additional meteorological parameters.
India selects GEONICA for National Solar Resource Assessment Network (Phase 1, Phase 2 and MEDA). GEONICA is selected to supply >125 Automatic Measurement Stations SEMS-3000 (Phase 1, 2 and MEDA) for solar radiation resource assessment in India. The network is used by NIWE National Institute of Wind Energy Technology (formely C-WET), an autonomous R&D institution under the India Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.
In recent years GEONICA has supplied measurement stations for the National Networks for the Evaluation of the Solar Energy Resource of Armenia and Canada, with the particularity that includes measurement of solar radiation resolved spectrally. These networks are based on our SEMS-2000/3000 system, which together with the measurement of global solar radiation incorporates its own solar tracker design, the SUN TRACKER-2000/3000 that enables the measurement of both diffuse and direct solar radiation.
Ten (10) RADAR tide gauges model DATAMAR-2000/3000® designed by GEONICA S. A. are installed based on the most modern electronic technology. The DATAMAR-2000/3000® System represents the ideal solution for measuring, recording and transmitting sea level data, not only for its high performance and advanced technical characteristics, but also for its great versatility and low cost. Each of the DATAMAR-2000/3000® Tideograph Network Stations consists of three (3) main elements, namely: a) The level sensor based on 26 GHz RADAR technology. b) The Data Measurement, Recording and Transmission Unit 2000/3000. c) A DIGICAM® model camera for image capture and storage.
