Voltalia has been selected by Power Capital Renewable Energy, an independent power producer based in Ireland, to build, operate and maintain four solar projects in the south-east of the country with a total capacity of 230MW. Lysaghtstown in County Cork will have a capacity of 131MW, Tullabeg in County Wexford will have a capacity of 83.9MW, while Painestown in County Meath and Beaulieu in County Louth will have capacities of 9.3MW and 6.6MW respectively.
All four projects are under construction, with the smaller sites to be completed in 2023 and the larger ones in 2024. All four solar plants will sell their electricity via long-term contracts in the technology sector. After their completion, Voltalia will carry out operations and maintenance services on behalf of Power Capital for a period of 15 years. Power Capital Renewable Energy, Voltalia and their subcontractors will employ up to 400 people on site. These local teams are supported by Voltalia’s offices in Portugal, where Voltalia has established a Global Solar Hub, supporting clients around the world.
