Statkraft, BayWa move ahead with second subsidy-free solar project in Spain

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Tech:Two sponsors of one of Spain’s iconic subsidy-free plants have sealed a deal to deploy a smaller successor in the same area, planned again without support from government money. Norwegian firm Statkraft will be the offtaker for Don Rodrigo 2, a new 50MWp zero-subsidy plant BayWa r.e. is already building near its 175MWp forerunner in Spain’s Seville province.The successor – under development near the town of Alcalá de Guadaira – should have wrapped up construction by the end of 2019, both firms explained in a statement this week. Once operational at its 162-hectare site, Don Rodrigo 2 will generate 100GWh in solar power and cover the electricity needs of around 30,000 households, the firms added.For BayWa r.e., the latest ground-breaking comes less than a year after Don Rodrigo was completed.“Solar power has truly come of age,” said Dr Benedikt Ortmann, managing director and head of solar projects at BayWa r.e., in this week’s statement. “This is just the beginning,” Ortmann added. “We are proactively looking for other projects and developers to work with in Spain and Portugal.”The subsidy-free project is the latest of a budding pipeline in Spain, which has gone from European symbol of policy u-turns to the continent’s zero-subsidy hotspot in a matter of years.More: BayWa r.e., Statkraft team up for Spanish subsidy-free solar successor Statkraft, BayWa move ahead with second subsidy-free solar project in Spainlast_img read more
