The Solar Photovoltaic Power Plant Aura II in Honduras, built by Isolux Corsan under a full EPC or “turn key” agreement, has received the certificate of project completion from Energía Cinco Estrellas S.A. de C.V. after having passed all its requirements and those of the National Electric Energy Company (ENEE). In addition, Isolux Corsan will be responsible for operating and maintaining the plant in the coming years.

Aura II was the first photovoltaic facility connected to the Honduran grid on July 31st, 2015 and has since become one of the most efficient and stable high-voltage grid-supply plants of the country. The Honduran electricity authority considers the Aura II plant “the most efficient and best managed in the region so far”.

Isolux Corsan has delivered its first PV Solar project in Honduras on a budget of nearly $100m: the Aura II PV Solar Plant, which will produce 61.48 MWp and has been built within a tight window of only 7 months.The PV Solar Plant, located in the region of Choluteca, will generate 109 million kWh per year, equivalent to supply clean energy to more than 80,000 Honduran families, and reducing the emission into the atmosphere of 40,000 tons of CO2 annually.

The project has been financed by private investors from Mexico and Honduras, and by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the Mexican bank Bancomext and the German development agency DEG.
