Solarcentury has received approval from the regional government in Andalucia to construct four PV projects in Alcala de Guadaira, Seville, Spain.

The four projects, known as “Cerrado Cabrera”, “El primo Alemán”, “Hazas de los sesenta” and “Los Gonzalez”, will generate enough energy to power 105,000 households once completed.

Solarcentury holds a Spanish office in Valencia, with the company boasting a pipeline of projects in Andalusia amounting to approximately 500MW. These four projects are the first to reach the ready-to-build stage, with each featuring an installed generation capacity of 50MW.

Solarcentury believes project construction is likely to begin in April 2019.

The projects are being delivered through a partnership with Texla, a local engineering firm based in Seville and with more than 20 years of experience in developing and maintaining renewable energy projects in Spain.

José Miguel Ferrer, Solarcentury’s managing director for Iberia, said: “We see these projects as a real win-win for the region. Not only generating clean renewable power for thousands of homes, they will have been built with no public subsidies, be a net generator of employment and environmentally friendly. We imagine the construction of this group of projects will last approximately twelve months from April 2019.

“Once the Seville projects are completed, these, along with Talayuela Solar in Cáceres, will be two of the largest scale solar power projects in Spain and among the most significant in Europe. They prove that solar power can and will be delivered at scale enabling Europe to lead in the transition from fossil fuels to zero carbon energy.”
