Voltalia wins 12 megawattsof new solar projects in Greece

Voltalia, an international player in renewable energies, announces it has won new solar projects totalling 12 megawatts in Korythio, municipality of Tripoli, in the Peloponnese region.

These new photovoltaic projects were awarded by the Greek Regulatory Authority of Energy as part of a public tender for 20-year power sales agreements. They will be spread into two clusters of 4 and 8 megawatts which are expected to be commissioned during the first half of 2021.

Voltalia has also won 10 megawatts of construction and maintenance contracts for one photovoltaic project owned by a third-party client who secured power sales agreements during the same auction.

Voltalia has been operating in Greece for 13 years. It owns and operates 31 photovoltaic plants in the country totalling 4.7 megawatts. Voltalia has also been providing services for third-party clients who desire to outsource construction, operations and maintenance of their Greek photovoltaic facilities, with up to 100 megawatts under contract since 2014 for O&M services. Voltalia Greece is certified ISO 9001 for integrated operation, management and maintenance services of solar photovoltaic power stations as well as for Engineering, Procurement of Equipment, and Construction (EPC) of turnkey solar photovoltaic power stations. It also obtained ISO 14001 and 45001 certifications.

After winning a 140-megawatt solar project in Albania in May – with the official contract signature having taken place on July 31st in presence of Albany’s Prime Minister and France’s Ambassador -, Voltalia continues to consolidate its presence in Europe.

“Greece has strong renewable power demand and Voltalia’s long-term local presence will help to seize the best available opportunities. These new solar projects demonstrate the relevance of Voltalia’s business model as an integrated renewable energies player. We deliver our expertise across the value chain including project development, engineering, equipment supply, construction, and maintenance. I thank the Voltalia teams for their mobilization on this project in a challenging context as the sanitary crisis continues to unfold”, commented Sébastien Clerc, Chief Executive Officer of Voltalia.
