November 20 (Renewables Now) - Spanish infrastructure group Acciona SA (BME:ANA) said today it has signed an agreement to supply more than 173 GWh of renewable power in 2020 to two glass container plants owned by the Vidrala group in Portugal.

The company will deliver power to Vidrala's Gallo Vidro and SB Vidros factories in the town of Marinha Grande. The glass plants will be able to offset around 60,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions during the contract term.

This is not the first contract between the two firms as Acciona has been supplying renewable energy to Vidrala since July 2018.

In the Iberian country, Acciona has 165.5 MW of operating renewable energy facilities, including 119.7 MW of wind farms and the 45.8-MWp Amareleja solar park near Moura.
