“The signing of these three new project finance deals is an important endorsement of our solvency developing and structuring projects in the photovoltaic market,” said Luis Cid, CEO of OPDEnergy. “We are delighted with the trust placed by top-level banking entities, which is another sign that our projects meet the high quality standards demanded by the market and represent an important vote of confidence for our activity,” added Cid.

Banco Sabadell and Bankinter have provided financing for the 50MW La Fernadina site. Banco Sabadell is the sole provider on the other two 50MW projects.
