The largest solar park in Europe, a 300MW project developed by France-based firm Neoen near Bordeaux, has been connected to the grid, reports PV Tech.

This park has had international players associated with it. A consortium composed of Eiffage, its subsidiary Clemessy, Schneider Electric and Krinner, was in charge of the works and construction of the park. Modules were supplied by three separate Chinese manufacturers, Trina Solar, Yingli Solar and Canadian Solar.

Interestingly, the solar park has an East-West facing orientation.
