Differential advantages

  • Integration into strategic markets in the renewable energy sector, considering optimal location conditions, natural factors and incentives.
  • Vertical integration of the value chain of each project: Development, EPC and O&M of our own renewable energy projects. We are involved in the complete life cycle of the projects, which includes land selection, design, financing, permits, engineering, supply, construction, installation, monitoring, operation and maintenance.
  • EPC and O&M services in Romania, Italy, UK, France, Bulgaria, Germany, Portugal and Mexico.
  • Projects developed and under development -Pipeline project- in Mexico, Italy and Spain.

Fixed structure vs solar trackers / Single row vs multi row axis tracker / Vertical vs horizontal position of the photovoltaic panels / Use of different types of panels and number of units per row in each installation, to maximize the power level and the quality of energy production / Centralized inverters vs distributed inverters / Cable trays vs underground cables /.

  • A portfolio of more than 5 GW under development, around 1000 MW ready to build.
  • Almost 1GW of photovoltaic projects installed.
  • We have provided Operation and Maintenance Services on photovoltaic projects totaling over 600 MW since 2011.
