Enerland Group to Build 66 MWp Photovoltaic Park in Guatemala

Enerland Group, a Spanish firm, has announced its expansion into Guatemala’s renewable energy market with the inauguration of its headquarters in the country and the commencement of construction on its inaugural photovoltaic park, Magdalena Solar, boasting a capacity of 66 MWp.


Expected to be operational by mid-2025, Magdalena Solar is projected to generate approximately 141 GWh of electricity annually. Enerland Group will oversee the comprehensive construction of the project on behalf of German company MPC Energy Solutions, building upon their successful collaboration on the 21.4 MWp Santa Rosa and Villa Sol plant in El Salvador in 2022.


Enerland Group’s foray into Guatemala began in 2021 with engineering projects and field tests for photovoltaic parks, along with active participation in energy sector events to deepen understanding of regional dynamics and needs. The company inaugurated its new office in Guatemala City’s Citibank Tower complex at the start of 2024, signaling its commitment to offering turnkey EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) and Operation and Maintenance services nationwide.


Notably, Guatemala has seen previous ventures into solar energy, including the announcement of a 5 MW photovoltaic project in 2014 and a subsequent tender for a 110 MW project in 2019, which was later cancelled. As of 2023, the country had an installed photovoltaic capacity of 105 MW, according to IRENA statistics.


Enerland Group’s entry into Guatemala’s renewable energy sector underscores its dedication to fostering sustainable energy solutions and contributing to the country’s energy transition efforts.
