EvoInfra acted as model auditor to Akuo Energy on the project financing of the 180MW Santas solar PV project in Portugal.
With an installed capacity of 180 MWp, the Santas solar plant is set to become one of the largest solar power plants in Portugal. The plant will comprise 336,448 photovoltaic modules and will help avoid the emission of more than 70,000 metrics tons of CO2 per year. Providing power to more than 100,000 households, the Santas solar plant will turn Monforte (more than 3,000 inhabitants) and Borba (more than 7,000 inhabitants) into positive energy municipalities.
The project will build on Akuo’s sizable footprint in the country. The company won tenders for three PV projects with a combined capacity of 370MW in 2019, and expects to finish construction at these facilities by the end of this year.
