Encavis buys 80% stake in 300 MW solar project in southern Spain



The Talayuela plant will be built by British developer Solarcentury in the region of Extremadura and will sell electricity under a PPA contract.

Germany-based renewable energy investment company, Encavis AG (formerly known as Chorus Clean Energy) has acquired an 80% stake in the 300 MW Talayuela solar project for an undisclosed sum.

Construction of the plant, located in Cerro Verde, in Spain’s southern region of Extremadura, will be carried out thanks to financing totaling €225 million, with project developer, U.K.-based SolarCentury, investing 20% of the required funds.

The completion and grid connection of the Talayuela project are planned for the first quarter of 2020. When realized, it should generate around 588.26 GWh of electricity per year, which will be sold to the market via private PPAs. Encavis expects revenues of around €25 million per year, from the first year of operation.

According to a document published in the Spanish Official Journal (BOE), a 30/400 kV substation totaling 21.42 km and a 400 kV transmission line for the evacuation, will also be constructed.

Last December, the Department of Energy and Infrastructure of Extremadura signed an MoU with SolarCentury and its partners, Genia Global Energy and Canopy Energies for the project, while this August the Ministry of Ecological Transition of Spain granted final approval

Talayuela was designated a strategic project by the regional government of Extremadura – a measure that has helped accelerate its development.
