April 11 (Renewables Now) - Spanish renewables outfit Magnon Green Energy, formerly known as Ence Energia, has obtained the necessary permits to soon start building a 10-MW solar PV farm in Huelva, southern Spain.

The firm’s parent, Spanish pulp producer and energy group Ence - Energia y Celulosa SA (BME:ENC), said on Friday that Magnon had secured environmental and construction permits to install the plant near the Huelva energy complex.

The 10-MW development is one of five solar projects totalling 373 MW that Magnon is working on in Spain’s southern region of Andalusia. All five will be transferred to Spanish utility Naturgy Energy Group SA (BME:NTGY) under the sale and purchase agreement that the Ence group signed in December last year.

Ence expects to secure environmental permits for the remaining projects between the second quarter of 2022 and early 2023, and close the sale by 2024, it said.

Magnon/Ence Energia is better known for its biomass-fired power plants. It operates eight of them in Spain, three of which are in Huelva.
