OHLA Secures Contract for 200 MW Solar Plant in Murcia, Spain

Renewable energy leader OHLA has expanded its portfolio with the recent award of a construction, commissioning, and operation contract for a new photovoltaic plant in Murcia, Spain. Valued at over 70 million euros, the project will boast a total installed capacity of 200 MW, further solidifying OHLA’s position in the renewable energy sector.

This latest contract comes on the heels of OHLA’s successful bid in January for a project in Castilla y Leon, also in Spain, with a total installed capacity of 100 MW and a budget exceeding 45 million euros.

The photovoltaic plant in Murcia will feature 330,344 photovoltaic modules and is projected to generate over 400,000 MWh/year of clean energy. This output will be sufficient to power approximately 40,000 homes annually and prevent the emission of around 350,000 tons of CO2 per year.

In addition to its environmental impact, the project includes measures to conserve biodiversity, particularly focusing on the preservation of the steppe bird community. Initiatives such as plantings, pond creation, and the installation of water points aim to support species like the Little Bustard and Black-bellied Sandgrouse, with efforts also underway to promote the nesting of golden eagles.

Moreover, the construction of the photovoltaic plant is anticipated to generate around 500 jobs, providing a significant boost to local employment.

With over 30 renewable energy projects spanning Europe, the Americas, and Asia, OHLA’s portfolio now boasts an impressive installed capacity of 2,500 MW. This capacity is equivalent to powering one million households annually.

In Spain alone, OHLA has nearly 2,000 MW of installed capacity, with recent projects including photovoltaic plants in Castilla y Leon, Seville, Badajoz, Merida, and Zaragoza.

With the addition of the newly awarded 200 MW project in Murcia, OHLA continues to contribute to Spain’s renewable energy transition, furthering its commitment to sustainability and carbon emission reduction.
