Total completes 8 MW capacity solar plant at its biorefinery in France

Total, a French oil group, has announced the completion of a 8 MW solar plant at its biorefinery Plateforme Total de La Mède, located in France’s Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. The company has used 17,000 modules from its US unit SunPower for the development of the project. The plant is spread across an area of 12 hectares and will cater to 50 per cent of the energy needs of the biorefinery. The refinery will become operational in 2019 and produce biodiesel, mainly from waste oils and partly from vegetable oils.
