Fòrum Photovoltaic pergola
Year of construction: 2004
The surface area of the pergola measures 112 metres x 50 metres (equivalent to a football pitch) and is made up of 3,780 square metres of solar panels.
The structure is composed of four large cement pillars of different height and incline, the highest point reaches 50 metres.
It includes 2,686 Isofoton mono-crystalline panels that generate a maximum peak of 449 kWp, and a total of 1,250 kWh/kWp.
The amount of power generated is equivalent to that needed by 1,000 homes and it avoids the production of 440 tonnes of CO₂ every year.
The pergola is an impressive structure that is able to generate a considerable amount of photovoltaic energy in a clean and sustainable way. Interestingly, its size and shape also make it a sort of huge parasol.
The pergola is a piece of iconic engineering in the city because of its design, its scale and its conception that took into account the effect of sea breezes and winds that can reach up to 200 km/hr.
