Spanish term or phrase: SCE
cada uno de los campos dispone de 120 lazos y cada campo cuenta con 11520 SCE.

The only reference I can find for SCE is Southern Californian Edision or CSP Concentrated Solar Power so i'm not sure from the context what to put.

SCE (solar collector element)
Explanation:
It's an English acronym that is used in Spanish too. It stands for "solar collector element". An SCA (solar collector assembly) is made up of a number of SCEs.

"Las dimensiones del colector SENERtrough son las estándar en las plantas españolas: cada lazo (de 600 m de longitud) está formado por cuatro colectores o SCA (Solar Collector Assembly) de 5.8 m de apertura y 150 m de largo, aproximadamente. Cada SCA está formado por 12 SCE (Solar Collector Element) de 5.8 metros de apertura y 12 m de largo. Los SCE son fabricados en la nave de montaje de la planta, la cual es aprovechada por el equipo de Operación y Mantenimiento de la planta una vez finalizada la fabricación."
