Enel Green Power España (EGPE) has started construction on the Nou Biniatria photovoltaic plant, in the municipality of Alcúdia, Mallorca, with an installed capacity of 14.97 MW.
Enel Green Power also received the go-ahead for the construction of the Sa Caseta photovoltaic plant, in the municipality of Llucmajor, Mallorca, with an installed capacity of 21.83 MW.
The construction of the Nou Biniatria project will involve an investment of around 13 million euros. The photovoltaic plant will consist of 38,880 photovoltaic panels, each with the capacity to produce 385 Watt peak of power from solar radiation, and 72 inverters, each with a capacity of 185 kW. As part of the construction process, EGPE will install two transformer stations and a private substation, in addition to a 1.7 km underground transmission line, which will run along existing roads to the REE-owned Sant Martí substation.
EGPE’s renewable projects on the Balearic Islands
Aside from the Nou Biniatria and Sa Caseta photovoltaic plants that are under construction, Enel Green Power is also seeking administrative approval for the construction of five more photovoltaic plants: Son Orlandis, Son Juny, Son Reus, Can Balança and Ca na Lloreta. Thanks to an investment of approximately 60 million euros, the 59,64MW obtained by EGPE in the Balearic Islands will generate 114 GWh per year avoiding the annual emissions into the atmosphere of 75,000 tons of CO2.
Enel Green Power currently operates over 7,836 MW of installed renewable capacity in Spain, which include 4,711 MW from conventional hydro; 2,386 MW from wind, 657 MW from solar, 79 MW from mini-hydro and 3 MW from other renewable sources.
