Audax Renovables visits the photovoltaic plant it is building in Fontanar
The Cañamares facility will produce 8.1 GWh of renewable energy per year, which is equivalent to the consumption of 2,300 homes
Audax Renovables (ADX.MC), the energy group that integrates the businesses of generation and marketing of renewable 100% electricity, has carried out a site visit prior to the inauguration of the Cañamares photovoltaic plant, which is expected to come into operation in the coming weeks.
The visit was carried out with the presence of Mr. Víctor San Vidal Martínez, Mayor-President of the Fontanar City Council, who accompanied the Management of Audax Renovables headed by José Elías Navarro (President), Eduard Romeu Barceló (Vice President) and Anabel López Porta (Generation Director), who stressed the importance of renewable energies to achieve a sustainable energy transition and to continue generating quality employment and growth.
The plant located in the municipality of Fontanar, in the province of Guadalajara (Castilla-La Mancha) will produce 8.1 GWh per year of renewable energy. During this visit, the authorities were able to learn first-hand about the characteristics of the plant that occupies approximately 8 hectares. The facility has 14,910 solar panels totaling 5 MW of nominal power. Its entry into operation will prevent the emission of 1,620 tons of CO2 per year into the atmosphere and will be the equivalent of planting 3,240 trees.
Audax Renovables has built the plant with high quality standards and has had top-level contractors such as Risen Energy, which carried out the construction under the EPC (turnkey) contract modality and, on the other hand, ImMODO Fotovoltaica, who developed the plant and have supervised the entire work.
This project is part of the Audax Group's strategy to increase its generation portfolio with the aim of supplying its clients with renewable energy produced in its own plants. The development of the aforementioned projects for a total sum of 320 MW, will supply, once their implementation begins, about 600 GWh per year of green energy, which is equivalent to the annual consumption of more than 171,600 homes.
