The local government of the Portuguese town of Palmela has approved the location for the construction of a 270-MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) project proposed by LOGZ Atlantic HUB SA.
The municipality has also okayed the infrastructure layout for the solar plant's connection to the power grid and issued a Declaration of Economic and Social Interest for the project.
The solar park will consist of 614,016 modules, spread over an area of 133 hectares (328.6 acres). Once in operation, it should be capable of generating 472,500 MWh per year.
The installation is still subject to the approval of the Portuguese Environment Agency and an environmental impact assessment, the municipality noted.
Meanwhile, Palmela and LOGZ have signed a collaboration agreement guaranteeing, among other things, the delivery of 10 electric vehicle (EV) chargers to the town.
