OHLA’s portfolio includes close to 30 renewable energy projects, both completed and under construction, in Europe, the Americas and Asia, with a total installed capacity of close to 1,600 MW. This energy would supply approximately 600,000 homes per year. All of this is part of its firm commitment to combat climate change, aiming for carbon neutrality and directing all its efforts towards a circular economy.

In Spain, where it manages close to 1.100 MW, the company has recently been awarded a new photovoltaic project in Zaragoza and other in the province of Seville, worth close to 60 million euros, for the construction and commissioning of two photovoltaic plants with a combined installed capacity of 87 MW (52.8 and 34.9 MW respectively).

The company is also executing the project for the design, construction and commissioning of a 130 MW photovoltaic plant in Badajoz (Spain), which will generate more than 240,000 MWh/year of 100% clean energy and will supply electricity to some 70,000 homes, or 150,000 people.

It has also built solar thermal plants such as Arenales, in Seville (50 MW), Puerto Errado, in Murcia (30 MW), one of the largest built in the world to date, and the Olivares photovoltaic plant (50 MW), in Jaén. In addition, the four photovoltaic plants awarded in 2022, currently under construction and located in Cedillo (Cáceres), with an installed capacity of 150 MW, Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz), with a capacity of 100 MW, Valladolid, where it will reach 66 MW, and Tarancón (Cuenca), with 100 MW.

In Latin America, where it manages nearly 530 MW, serving a population equivalent of approximately 100,000 people, it has the La Jacinta Solar photovoltaic farm (65 MW of power), located in Uruguay; the Perote II photovoltaic plant (120 MW), located in Mexico, as well as the La Huella photovoltaic facility (87 MW) and the La Estrella wind farm (50 MW), both in Chile. It is also building the 200 MW Coya photovoltaic plant in Chile.

Other projects carried out by OHLA include the 20 MW photovoltaic plant in Tucson (Arizona, USA), and the Al Mafraq and Empire I photovoltaic plants, each with 65 MW and located in Jordan.
