Southern Spains solar power project of 200 MW will be developed by UK firm

U.K.-firm Solarcentury has got permission to build four solar parks in Spanish town of Alcala de Guadaira by the regional government of Andalusia.

In an announcement Tuesday, Solarcentury said that the projects would have an output of around 50 Megawatt each and would generate enough electricity to power 105,000 homes. The construction will begin in April 2019 and expected to last for 12 months.

Solarcentury was found in the year 1998; this has its presence I Latin America, Europe and Africa. The business has developed and built over 1 GW of solar till date, having 2.4 GW in pipeline for future.

WE see these projects as a real win-win for region, Jose Miguel Ferrer, Solarcenturys Managing Director for Iberia, said in a statement. 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, he added.

The size of solar power facilities around the world may vary from small scale projects like Solarcentury to vast developments like Chinas Tengger Desert Solar Park, which has the capacity of more than 1,500 GW.

Solarcenturys projects represent the largest solar energy developments in Spanish Solar sector. For instance, in September Enel Green Power Espana (EGPE) started construction of an 84.7 MW solar PV facility in Murcia, Spain. EPGE also stated that the Totona project will comprise of 248,000 PV modules and will begin its operation in third quarter of 2019.
