Poland’s Nomad Electric is all set to support its first portfolio of photovoltaic projects in Portugal.
To facilitate this, the company has opened a new branch office in Lisbon.
According to the company, it is planning to start work on its first contract that includes developments with a total capacity of over 70MWp.
These projects are located in six different districts like Evora, Santarem, Castelo Branco, Leiria, Coimbra and Aveiro.
Issuing a statement, the company said that it “will provide the power plant control systems, SCADA with its proprietary 'Nomad NX' software and ensure system compatibility with electricity transmission system operator REN and distribution network operator E-REDES.”
It will be followed by operations and maintenance services.
Besides Lisbon, the company also has plans for international expansion this year.
Pawel Muszynski, Business Development Director at Nomad Electric, was quoted, “The current geopolitical situation has had a significant impact on accelerating the energy transition process and the development of renewable energy sources in particular. This is no different in Portugal, where the government plans to increase the share of RES in the country's energy mix from 20% to 80% by 2026, four years earlier than originally planned.”
He further stated that in terms of Portuguese photovoltaic capacity, it will be increased from the current 2GWp to 9GWp in 2030.
