June 22 (Renewables Now) - Heineken NV’s (AMS:HEIA) Spanish unit has secured a building permit to construct a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant at its brewery in Seville, the city council of Seville, which licensed the works, announced on Tuesday.
The permit comes about a month after Heineken Spain announced it had signed an agreement with energy company Engie Espana to execute the project within the brewery’s grounds in southern Spain.
Engie Espana, part of French utility group Engie SA (EPA:ENGI), was awarded the build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) contract, and will be responsible for the design, project management, installation and financing.
The CSP plant will operate as a self-consumption system that will power the brewery and enable it to cut fossil fuel consumption by over 60%. Under its contract, Engie Espana will supply the power for 20 years.
