September 2 (Renewables Now) - Eiffage Energia, the Spanish outpost of French electrical engineering company Eiffage Energie Systemes, announced on Wednesday that it will begin shortly with the construction of a 234-MW solar PV cluster in Cadiz province, Spain.

The firm was awarded the job by Norwegian power producer Statkraft A/S.

Eiffage Energia is tasked with building four solar farms -- Arenosas, Malabrigo, El Yarte and La Guita -- across a territory spanning close to 400 hectares (988.4 acres), the company said.

These sites were originally developed by UK solar energy firm Solarcentury. Statkraft inherited the portfolio when it acquired Solarcentury in late November 2020.

So far, among the known contractors involved in the project are Spanish engineering and consulting firm SOLIDA Renewable Energies, which secured the role of the owner’s engineer, and Soltec Power Holdings SA (BME:SOL), which is supplying its SF7 bifacial trackers.

Eiffage Energia and Eiffage Energie Systemes are part of French civil engineering group Eiffage SA (EPA:FGR).
