FCC's Solar Power Plant

Infrastructure firm FCC has completed the construction of its first  solar thermal power plant in Spain.

The 50MW Guzmán plant in the city of Palma del Río, which took two years to build, commenced operations this week.

The project was built in a 70:30 joint venture with Japanese firm Mitsui at a cost of €280m.

It is capable of producing enough energy to meet the electricity needs of 26,000 people in the region and will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by around 100,000t.

FCC Energía general manager Eduardo González said that the power plant represents a milestone for the firm.

“We lead the development, funding, construction and operation of the plant with the invaluable help of our partners Mitsui on the investment side and FCC Industrial, Abantia and Seridom on the construction side,” González added.
