Once operational, the electricity generated by the plant will be used to power PDO’s interior operations. The utility-scale PV project has in place a 23-year power purchase agreement (PPA). The oil and gas company is the only wholesale buyer of energy produced by the plant.

Enertis has been part of the project from its designing phase and is responsible for monitoring all the technically associated features. The project, which is currently under construction, is expected to start commercial operation by May 2020.

Enertis Engineering and Construction Management head Pablo Filgueira said: “It is always a great challenge and honor to support projects with this dimension and participate in a pioneer project working for an experienced consortium such as Amin Renewable Energy Company SAOC.

“We believe in the potential of this market and we have the intention to consolidate our presence in the Middle East region showing the capacity of the Enertis team.”
