ACCIONA Energy has been a pioneer in the installation of large photovoltaic plants, with capacities higher than 1 MW. In 2001 it built a plant at Tudela (Navarra) that was the biggest PV facility in Spain at the time (1.2 MWp), equipped with an experimental area to test a number of technological solutions for later developments.
Since then, we have become one of the most expert companies in this kind of installation, installing 487 MWp in 27 large plants, both owned by the company or built for third-party customers. Our latest large-scale project is El Romero Solar Project, in the Atacama Desert (northern Chile), the largest in Latin America with 246 MWp when it was completed. We have also built the Sishen plant in South Africa (94 MWp), which has the highest level of production on the African continent. In 2017 we will start building a 339-MWp PV plant in Sonora, Mexico.
