January 11 (Renewables Now) - Spanish-Japanese company Univergy International announced on Wednesday it intends to build 400 MW of photovoltaic (PV) parks in Spain's province of Palencia.

The company has plans for two PV farms in the cities of Grijota and Herrera de Pisuerga. No investment details were given in the press release.

Univergy already has the energy permits in place and is currently in talks with local landowners to sign 25-year rental agreements. It aims to have the two solar power plants up and running in 2020.

These parks will cover an area of about 400 hectares (988.42 acres) and should create some 100 jobs during the construction phase, the company said.

In addition to the two PV farms, the firm also has solar pump projects in Palencia, which will help reduce the use of fossil fuels for irrigation.
