Contributing to a 14% increase in renewable energy for electricity production

Efacec supplied the Norwegian company Statkraft, leader in hydroelectric energy and the largest renewable energy generator in Europe, with a 200MVA 132/30 kV power transformer, integrated in the four photovoltaic plants installed in Cádiz, namely in Jerez de la Frontera – San Jose del Valle. The new plants produce clean energy that can be supplied to 120,000 families, representing a 14% increase in renewable energy for electricity production in the Andalusian region.

Statkraft selected Efacec for the technical superiority and know-how it has demonstrated in the energy, environment and industry sectors. As Efacec has already participated in important international projects, the company’s intervention in the development of the photovoltaic plant in the Atacama Desert, in Chile, stands out, which reaches the highest levels of efficiency in its class, as well as other key renewable projects in hand (solar, wind and hydro) in more than 10 countries.

This project stems from the Andalusian government’s strong commitment to energy policy and the potential for it to become a European reference in the fight against climate change, reversing dependence on fossil fuels and reducing the economic impact of the cost of energy in the productive and industrial sectors.

” This is yet another relevant project that Efacec is developing in the Spanish market, in which it has been present for over 20 years. The company has been responsible for emblematic contracts with the main operators, contributing to the production of renewable energy, avoiding the emission of harmful gases and supporting the sustainable energy transition.” says Michael Silva, Executive Director of Efacec, with the Commercial.

Carlos Rojas, Statkraft’s Head of Procurement in Southern Europe, says: “We are very pleased with the partnership with Efacec within the scope of the projects we have built in southern Spain which currently provide clean and indigenous energy to 120,000 homes. After this experience, we are confident that we will continue to work together to drive the energy transition through our renewable projects, both in Spain and Portugal”.
