Enel Commissions Second Mallorcan Solar Plant
Enel Green Power Espana has commissioned the almost 15MW Nou Biniatria solar farm on Mallorca, its second PV project on the Spanish island.
The 14.96MW project, located in the town of Alcudia, is expected to generate approximately 24.84 gigawatt-hours of electricity a year.
Nou Biniatria entailed an investment of around €14m, the company said.
It consists of 38,880 photovoltaic panels, two transformer stations and a private substation, in addition to a 1.7 km underground transmission line, which runs along existing roads to the Sant Marti substation.
Endesa chief executive Jose Bogas said: “At the Alcúdia plant in Mallorca we are looking at developing up to 73MW of solar capacity in the area of the plant.
“The project is yet another confirmation of our commitment towards strengthening the renewable generation mix in Spain and helping the country towards its renewable energy targets.”
Enel Green Power expects to start building a further five solar plants on Mallorca - Son Orlandis, Son Juny, Son Reus, Can Balança and Can na - when the necessary administrative approval has been secured.
