French renewable power producer Qair will at the start of next year break ground on an 8-MW solar park in Italy, where it has built a portfolio of 1.7 GW of projects awaiting clearance.
The Paris-based platform, which produces green electricity from wind, solar and hydropower, said on Thursday that the photovoltaic (PV) project in Marrubiu, Sardinia, is part of a larger bundle it acquired last summer with the purchase of German renewables developer Green City AG’s core business and its two companies in Italy and France.
After the project in Sardinia, more schemes will follow in the Lazio and Basilicata regions, Qair said.
The French company last month secured a positive decision on the environmental compatibility of a 73-MW wind farm project in the municipalities of San Mauro Forte, Salandra and Garaguso, in Italy’s Basilicata region. Of its 1.7-GW total portfolio under review in the Mediterranean country, it expects 150 MW to be granted approval “shortly.”
Globally, Qair has about 1 GW of operating assets, mostly onshore wind and solar, and a 25-GW development pipeline in Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia. It aims to add 4 GW of renewable projects over the next five years.
