Eurowind Energy starts the construction of first solar PV project in Portugal

The rights for the 22 MWp project, Triana, were acquired from Hyperion Renewables and construction began in October 2021. The solar plant is located in Alenquer municipality, north of Lisbon.

Eurowind Energy has started the construction of its first Solar PV project in Portugal. The agreement to acquire the project from experienced renewable developer Hyperion Renewables was reached in August 2020 and completed in April this year as the project entered “ready to build” stage.

With 40.741 photovoltaic bifacial modules totaling 22MWp, installed on 2V one axis tracking systems over 30 hectares, the solar PV plant will be connected to the substation of Cheganças at 30kV and is anticipated to provide approximately 14.100 households with green electricity, while avoiding the emission of more
than 19.000 tons of CO2 per year.

The “Balance of Plant” works encompassing all the civil, mechanical, electrical and grid connection works were awarded to CJR Renewables and the PV modules were acquired under a frame agreement signed with Longi Solar earlier this year. A first scope of civil works started at the end of October 2021, and the full notice to proceed was issued at the beggining of December 2021. Triana PV plant is expected to start operating in Q3 2022.

Eurowind Energy’s CEO, Jens Rasmussen, said:
“Our Portuguese team has been developing from scratch a larger green field pipeline which includes PV,
wind and storage as well as hydrogen projects. We aim to have an increasingly active role in Portugal, and it is very exciting to see that our contribution for a greener economy in this market has just taken off.”

Pedro Pereira, Managing Director Southern Europe, noted:
“The acquisition and construction start of Triana PV project is the result of a hard job done by our team in the past years. This is just the first project of a number of renewables projects in our pipeline and we look forward to starting the construction of another portfolio of projects already next year.”

Eurowind Energy is committed to develop social and environmental responsible projects. As part of the company’s out‐reach program for new projects, a website ( has been created in order to
keep the local community and other important stakeholders informed about the project while being able to interact with the project management.

Eurowind Energy is also finalizing the licensing of a portfolio of more than 40MW of small generation PV plants (“UPPs”) in the North and Center of Portugal which are scheduled to start construction in 2022.
