DRIVING THE TRANSFORMATION

< back to previous page

Sustainability always means striking a balance between economic, ecological and social aspects. Nowhere is this as clear and important as it is in the field of renewable energies. They play a significant role in contemporary climate and energy policy.

INVESTING IN NEW LEAD MARKETS

Foresight, creative determination and courage are characteristic of the attitude with which we invest in pioneering firms in the lead markets for renewable energies. We intend to play a leading role in financing and developing innovation and growth in renewable energies. Our goal is to promote intelligent solutions that contribute to the responsible use of resources and offer economically sustainable operations while at the same time safeguarding the quality of life for future generations.

In view of this, we focus our investment on high-performance solar plants and wind turbines, working exclusively with the components of absolute premium manufacturers.

CONTINUATION OF ONE THE LARGEST SOLAR PROJECTS IN PORTUGAL.

The 22.9 MWp solar park in the western part of the country, north of the capital Lisbon, is expected to produce 61,600 MWh of green solar power annually from the 36,100 solar modules. In the years to come, this energy will be able to supply around 8,800 four-person households with electricity while saving up to 16,000 tons of CO2 a year. This project also requires WIRTGEN INVEST to feed the power in directly at the high-voltage level.

DEVELOPMENT OF ONE THE LARGEST SOLAR PROJECTS IN PORTUGAL.

The 9.7 MWp solar park in the western part of the country, north of the capital Lisbon, is expected to produce 15,200 MWh yearly of green solar power from the 26,200 solar modules. Over the coming years, this energy will be able to supply close to 3,700 four-person households with electricity while saving up to 6,700 tons of CO2 a year.

A REAL HEAVYWEIGHT – ONE OF THE LARGEST SOLAR PROJECTS IN PORTUGAL.

Due to the excellent insolation, the 46.4 MWp solar park in the south of the country is expected to generate an annual energy yield of 79,100 MWh of green solar power. In the years to come, the approximately 125,000 solar modules installed at the site will suffice to power approximately 19,250 four-person households while saving nearly 35,000 tonnes of CO2 annually. In a first for WIRTGEN INVEST, the size of the project requires feed-in directly at the high-voltage level.

04 | Energy | MILESTONE – ONE OF THE LARGEST SOLAR PROJECTS IN PORTUGAL.
MILESTONE – ONE OF THE LARGEST SOLAR PROJECTS IN PORTUGAL.

Due to the excellent irradiation at that site, the approximately 47,000 solar modules at the 17.5 MWp solar park in the country’s southeast near the Spanish border are expected to generate 28,770 MWh of green solar power annually. In the years to come, this energy will supply some 7,000 four-person households with electricity while saving up to 12,600 tonnes of CO2 per annum.
