French builder Eiffage SA (EPA:FGR) will serve as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the 250-MWp Campanario solar project in Spain.
The contract, worth more than EUR 120 million (USD 140.4m), was awarded by Spanish developer Elawan Energy to Eiffage’s local energy subsidiary, the French company said.
The Campanario project will see the construction of five adjacent photovoltaic (PV) parks, each of 50 MWp, at a 400-hectare (988.4 acres) site in Bonete, Albacete province. Eiffage is to install 563,000 solar modules and build a 3,400-metre (11,155 ft) power line at the site.
Once connected, the Campanario plants will generate around 96.5 GWp of electricity each year, or enough to power close to 122,000 homes.
Eiffage will hand over the installation at the end of 2021.
Eiffage Energia and Elawan more recently partnered on the 35.6-MWp Torrijos PV project, which reached commercial operation in 2020.
