MADRID, Spain – Sonnedix, the international Renewable Energy Producer, has completed the construction of four solar PV plants, totalling 57MW, located in Valladolid, Castilla y León province in Spain.
All four ground-mounted photovoltaic plants have been built by EPC Ríos Renovables, who will also oversee the operations and maintenance work on behalf of Sonnedix throughout the entire life of the projects.
The plants form part of a larger portfolio acquired by Sonnedix in 2021 in well-advanced development stage. With a total capacity of 77MW, the portfolio includes a fifth solar PV plant, of 20MW, which is currently under construction and is expected to enter operations during the second quarter of 2023.
The full 77MW portfolio is expected to generate around 156GWh of clean electricity during its first year, capable of powering over 50,000 Spanish homes and removing over 30,000 metric tons of CO2 from the atmosphere. For this portfolio, Sonnedix has signed a twelve-year-long renewable energy power purchase agreement (PPA) with Endesa, Spain’s largest electric company.
“We are incredibly proud of this milestone that reinforces our development and construction capabilities, already shown last December with the start of operations of our 50MW solar plant Sonnedix Los Frailes, in Badajoz” said Axel Thiemann, CEO of Sonnedix. “This achievement demonstrates both the wide range of expertise within our team and our strong long-term commitment to being a driving force of the energy transition, in Spain and worldwide.”
Sonnedix’s global footprint spans ten countries across three continents, with a total capacity of over 9.5GW, including a development pipeline of more than 6.7GW. In Spain, the renewable energy producer currently has more than 800MW in operations and over 700MW under construction and various development phases. The company continues actively looking for further opportunities to expand its platform through the acquisition and development of renewable energy projects in Spain, and across other OECD markets.
