REA - Mula Photovoltaic Plant
The largest photovoltaic plant in Europe is already a reality in Murcia, Spain.
The Mula photovoltaic solar plant, a project with 493.74MW peak generating capacity that extends over 1,000 hectares, is today the largest photovoltaic plant in Europe and one of the 20 largest in the world.
The plant, built by Cobra, of the ACS Group, is divided into 33 subplots and has been connected since July, 2019.
Renewable Energy Advisors (REA), was responsible for performing the engineering work of the property and quality control of the entire plant, as well as technical consultancy work for the property.
- Use of Fieldwire on a €300M project
- Real-time communication across 1,000 hectares of construction
- More than 15,000 tasks tracked in Fieldwire
- Report generation
- Georeferencing of information
- Agile communication with the client and subcontractors
REA arises from the need to provide specific services adapted to the new conditions in the framework of renewable energy and energy efficiency. In this sense, the group makes available to its client all the services necessary for the design, execution, and exploitation of a renewable energy project.
In the case of the Mula project, REA used Fieldwire to ensure effective and quality supervision.
Information management and highly improved reporting
One of the main reasons REA chose Fieldwire was for it’s simple information management and report generation features, which they needed for better task supervision.
According to REA’s construction manager, Manuel Ramiro, Fieldwire not only allowed them to georeference information across more than 1,000 hectares of land, but made it possible for workers to add photos and checklists directly to plans, and thus minimize the time it took them to prepare reports.
Seamless communication between the client and subcontractors
In addition, Fieldwire’s real-time communication capabilities helped REA communciate with the client and subcontractors much more effectively. As a result, the project progressed much quicker than previous projects where Fieldwire had not been used.
Fieldwire & REA, a strengthened relationship over the past few years
Having finished the Mula plant project, REA is alreadyy thinking about its next project, the Pamesa photovoltaic plant, where they plan to use Fieldwire again to guarantee success.
