Renewables firm Global Energy Services (GES) has started construction work on three solar projects in Spain with a combined capacity of 131MWp.

Located in the country’s western Extremadura region, the plants – called Cáceres 2020, Cáceres 2021 and Cáceres 2023 – will have a total of 240,800 panels and will generate 243,600MWh per year. They will be connected to a 30/220kV step-up substation located at one of the plants.

GES will provide equipment and material supplies and carry out design, engineering and construction of the projects, which are expected to be operational by end of 2021.

The plants are owned by Alter Enersun, a solar developer that is part of Spanish conglomerate CL Grupo Industrial, which acquired GES in 2017.

GES has to date constructed more than 1GW of solar in markets such as Chile and Jamaica. It started work last year on a 49MW plant in the south of Spain that is owned by a newly formed joint venture from Alter Enersun and Bruc Energy.

In addition to GES’s three projects, Extremadura is set to host a range of new large-scale solar projects, including the 590MW Francisco Pizarro plant being developed by Iberdrola as well as 150MW of projects from utility Endesa.
