Key Takeaways

  • Solaria Energia has received additional favourable feasibility access permit to expand its planned solar PV complex in Spain
  • From previously disclosed 450 MW capacity, the complex can now be expanded to 626 MW
  • The management says this project will not only be one amongst the biggest PV complexes in Europe, it will also be one of the most cost efficient in terms of capex and opex

Spanish solar power company Solaria Energia y Medio Ambiente, SA will be expanding the installed capacity of its 450 MW Trillo Solar Project to a whopping 626 MW. The company has secured an additional favourable feasibility access permit or the IVA linked to Trillo 400 kV substation.

With 626 MW, the Trillo PV Complex will be among the biggest PV complexes in Europe, claimed Solaria Energia Chairman Enrique-Diaz Tejeiro and added that it will also be one of the most efficient projects in terms of installation costs or capex and operating costs or opex.

Earlier this month, Solaria Energia said it had won the IVA for 450 MW Trillo Solar Project in Guadalajara, Spain, making it the largest project in its portfolio for which it has already acquired over 1,000 hectares of land. With a current operational capacity of over 185 MW today, Solaria aims to reach an impressive volume of 3,325 MW by 2023 (see Spanish Firm Secures Approval For 450 MW Solar Project).

The expansion of the Trillo complex to 626 MW will make it account for around 20% of the 2023 target Solaria Energia hopes to achieve. It claims to have a pipeline exceeding 6.6 GW of potentially developable projects in Iberia.
