Spanish firm Powertis SA has announced its entry into the Danish market with the intent to develop more than 150 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in the Scandinavian country.
The company, a subsidiary of Soltec Power Holdings SA (BME:SOL), is planning to install the plants based on the agrovoltaic model, which enables the continued farming and livestocking activities at the locations.
Powertis will mount the photovoltaic (PV) plants on single-axis trackers, freeing the terrains from traditional large on the ground panels, the company said.
“Denmark is a great opportunity for our company in terms of international growth and development, as it is one of the European markets with the greatest potential and a pioneer in the introduction of Agrovoltaics solar plants," CEO Pablo Otin commented.
By the end of the first quarter of 2021, the company exceeded 6 GW of global capacity, including in Spain, Italy and Brazil.
Denmark is targeting over 6 GW of installed PV energy by 2030.
