GES is working for the solar sector for 14 years now. The company has execution capacity to accomplish all kind of photovoltaic installation. Its wide experience includes PV installations of less than 1MW to utility scale plants, both ground, and rooftop, which enables the company to be actively present both in the commercial as in the industrial segment.
GES offers reliable solutions with the máximum quality for the South Europe Region (Spain, France, Italy, and Portugal), MENA (Morocco, Egypt, Jordan and South Arabian) and LATAM (Mexico, Caribe, Central America, Colombia, Chile and Argentina).
GES carries out turnkey projects, including the full EPC of the plant. The company has its own engineering to calculate low, médium and high voltage, mechanical and civil calculations. GES cooperates with its customers from the very first stage of the project, starting with previous studies (topographic, hydrologic, geothermal, and from feasibility), developing the basic and detailed engineering, which makes it possible to optimize the project CAPEX and adapting the solutions for every need. GES has an experienced construction división with a wide international expertise in the execution and coordination of the most challenging projects.
GES has a wide expertise in rooftop photovoltaic systems, both industrial and commercial, from médium to large scale. The company’s rooftop references include more than 150 installations in several countries.
GES’ long experience in rooftop systems, enables the company to support its customers in every aspect involved in the project. GES works in the design and engineering of the plant, this allows the company to develop efficient systems, replicable for a large number of rooftops with standardized solutions. This is especially interesting for multipoint projects (supermarket chains, hotels, logistic operators…) We have our own tools for the system sizing. GES advise its customers about technology and construction methods for each rooftop type, in several aspects such as tightness, structure calculations, anchor systems, safety on site, collective security installations design and safety plans.
Since the first solar plant GES constructed in Spain, back in 2004, GES has constructed 430MW utility-scale PV plants. One of the latest projects GES was in charge of, was the Conejo PV plant in Chile. A 122MWp plant. GES is currently working in a project in Mexico that will have an installed capacity of 38MWp connected to the high voltage grid of the CFE.
GES carries out turnkey projects, from the early stage, thanks to a dedicated engineering team, specialized in photovoltaic energy, a supply chain team that manage all the logistics and procurement aspects of the plant and a construction business unit that can execute successfully the more complex projects all around the world.
As a multi-technology service provider, GES has worked with PV modules from leading companies and different inverters, trackers, fixed structures and monitoring systems/SCADA.
Location: Taltal, Chile
Power: 122 MW
Execution time: August 2015 - September 2016
One of the biggest PV plants in Chile
The execution of the 122 PV plant was a challenge itself, as it was the biggest solar plant constructed until that moment by GES. PV plant was located in a remote area in the Atacama desert, which made the logistic very difficult. Equipment was delivered from very different places in the world (China, Spain, Sweden, Mexico... ) The project included two substations and an interconnection line.
More than 600 technicians were working at the plant at the same time in some stages of the project. More than 1.000 containers were delivered to plant. 1.26 Million photovoltaic modules were installed.
The project was completed following GES quality standards. This proves GES potential to construct utility scale projects.
