Voltalia, a global renewable energy player, announced the successful full commissioning of its Portuguese cluster, Garrido, comprising five solar plants with a collective 50.6 MW capacity. 


The construction began in September 2021, achieving full capacity progressively since March 2023. Initial power generation started at Vale Serrão (2.4 MW), Pinhal Novo (11.8 MW), and Alcochete (23.8 MW). The Oliveira de Frades (1.2 MW) and Antuzede (11.4 MW) sites are now connected. The entire cluster’s capacity is underpinned by long-term Corporate Power Purchase Agreements, including with BA Glass, cutting 46,685 tonnes of CO2 emissions yearly.

“We are delighted to announce the full capacity of our Garrido cluster. Portugal is a pioneer in Europe, with a significant share of renewable energies in its energy mix. I thank all the teams for successfully delivering this cluster,” said Sébastien Clerc, CEO of Voltalia.
