Commissioning of the Canadel solar power plant (10.4 MW) in France
Voltalia (Euronext Paris, ISIN code: FR0011995588), an international player in
renewable energies, announces today the completion of the construction of the
Canadel solar power plant (10.4 MW), in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region.
Won during the CRE III tender at the end of 2015, the Canadel solar power plant
is located in Brignoles, in the Var de- partment, and benefits from a
twenty-year electricity sales contract.
The power plant, whose construction started in the second quarter of 2017, is
equipped with high performance solar panels, hence maximizing the yield of the
solar resource, which is among the best in the country.
For this project, Voltalia has implemented an ecological supervision of the
construction works and a sustainable management of the neighbouring areas in
order to preserve the local fauna and flora. Furthermore, a grazing agreement
with a local shepherd will contribute to land maintenance during all the
operation of the equipments.
The Canadel plant will cover the annual consumption of nearly 8,300
inhabitants. Next on the agenda: Q2 2018 revenues, on July 18th, 2018
