Metka EGN, a subsidiary of Greece-based Mytilineos, has signed a €200m contract with Talasol Solar to construct a 300MWp solar power plant in the municipality of Talaván, Cáceres, Spain.

Talasol Solar is a subsidiary of Israeli company Ellomay Capital.

The scope of work includes engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the Talasol project, as well as ancillary facilities for feeding power into the grid, including a 400kV step-up substation, high voltage interconnection line to the point of connection to the grid, and two years of operation and maintenance services.

Mytilineos chairman and CEO Evangelos Mytilineos said: “We appreciate the confidence placed in us by Ellomay. This project is a landmark in terms of competitive, subsidy-free solar power in Europe and we look forward to successfully completing it on time and certainly on budget.

“We are committed to further expand our activity in this growing market, both in terms of supporting major global clients with competitive EPC solutions, but also building up our own project development and investment activity in the sector.”

In April 2018, Mytilineos’s subsidiary Metka Power West Africa signed an agreement with the Nigerian government for the first phase of the Energising Education programme to provide uninterrupted power to several federal universities and university teaching hospitals across Nigeria.

The Energising Education programme is an initiative developed by the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing and implemented by the Rural Electrification Agency (REA).

The agreement covers full EPC services for four universities, including power generation plants, street lighting and training centres, as well as operation and maintenance services.

The four universities will be powered by hybrid power plants utilising renewable energy sources integrated with energy storage and diesel generation as back-up. The company will install 7.5MW of off-grid hybrid power, incorporating the Exeron technology and the latest developments in mini-grid design.

This will be the first off-grid/hybrid project for Mytilineos in Africa.
