May 19 (Renewables Now) - Norwegian power company Statkraft A/S said today that it has started building a 55-MWp solar farm in the Spanish region of Extremadura.

It said the project, Talayuela Solar II, will require an investment of more than EUR 34 million (USD 35.7m). Construction works are expected to last some ten months.

The Talayuela Solar II project was developed by Statkraft in collaboration with Spanish firms Genia Global Energy Solutions and Extrepronatur.

The new facility will also become a sister plant to the nearby 300-MWp Talayuela Solar, which was Statkraft's first project in Extremadura. Germany's Encavis AG (ETR:ECV) took over full ownership of the first Talayuela in late December 2021.
