Covaci Solar Park, which will be one of the world's largest thin-film photovoltaic (PV) power systems, is being built on a 60-hectare (148-acre) plot of land to the north of Timişoara in Romania. The power plant will be a 35-megawatt solar power system using state-of-the-art thin-film technology, and was to be finished by the end of 2011. A total of 480,000 First Solar thin-film modules will be used, and will supply 35,000 MWh of electricity per year.
The installation is in the Timiş County in western Romania, on a 560-hectare (1,384-acre) plot of land in the commune of Sânandrei. The investment cost for the Covaci solar park amounts to some Euro 180 million.
