Total installed power of 150 MW will generate sufficient energy to supply nearly 92,000 homes
OHLA is awarded three photovoltaic projects in Spain valued at more than 45 million euros
OHLA is moving forward in its commitment to sustainable infrastructures with its participation in the design, construction and commissioning of three photovoltaic plants in Medina de las Torres, Badajoz (Spain): Los Llanos I, II and III. With installed capacity of 50 MW each, they will generate more than 300,000 MWh/year of 100% clean energy, for almost 92,000 homes. The project, owned by X-ELIO, an international company specializing in the development, operation and maintenance of photovoltaic solar energy projects, has been assigned a procurement budget of more than 45 million euros.
The project’s development also involves OHLA’s social and environmental commitment, through its participation in local and regional initiatives in education, health and environmental matters in the surroundings where this initiative will be launched. Specifically, the company has undertaken to develop and stimulate the surroundings where the plants are located, by generating more than 300 jobs in the region, seeking to fight against rural depopulation.
Experience in renewable energy projects
OHLA is a reference in the design, development, operation and maintenance of renewable energy plants, totaling more than 1,000 MW under management in seven countries. Thus, the company has executed projects such as Arenales thermosolar plant (50 MW) in Seville, and Puerto Errado thermosolar plant (30 MW) in Murcia; Valiente wind farm (20 MW) in Huesca, and San Juan del Puerto biomass plant (50 MW) in Huelva. Of interest too are photovoltaic farms Trujillo III (11 MW), La Olmeda (6 MW), and Zafra (50 MW), all in Spain.
In Latin America, the company has executed La Jacinta Solar (65 MW) photovoltaic farm in Uruguay; Perote II (120 MW) photovoltaic farm in Mexico; and, in Chile, La Huella (87 MW) photovoltaic facility and La Estrella (50 MW) wind farm. In addition to these, it has been involved in developing the 20 MW photovoltaic plant in Tucson (Arizona), and photovoltaic plants Al Mafraq and Empire I, of 65 MW each, located in Jordan.
In addition to all of these, OHLA is currently executing the following photovoltaic plants: Coya 200 MW (Chile), Hueneja 150 MW (Spain) and Olivares 50 MW (Spain).
OHLA, through its Industrial activity line, strives to reinforce its renewable energy business, as a construction and management company, and will incorporate green hydrogen storage and production technology as part of its fight against climate change, a neutral carbon print and a circular economy.
