The construction of the Puerto Real 3 project in the Cadiz region of Andalusia has started with a ground-breaking ceremony. The construction will cover an area of almost 130 hectares in which more than 88,000 solar panels will be installed. MET’s first solar project in Spain is scheduled to start commercial operations in the third quarter of 2023. The construction of the Puerto Real 3 solar power plant will be completed in partnership with CMC Europe, which is responsible for engineering, procurement and construction. The investment will cover an area of almost 130 hectares in which more than 88.000 solar panels will be installed. The solar park will be connected to the electricity grid through an existing high-voltage substation. The power plant incorporates the latest technology and has an expected lifetime of at least 30 years. Swiss-based MET Group acquired a 100% stake in the Spanish 50 MWp photovoltaic project at a ready-to-build status in April 2022. The Puerto Real 3 project is situated in the Andalusia region of Spain, known for its high solar irradiation levels.
