Belinchón solar plant. Benoît de Ruffray, Chairman and CEO of the Eiffage Group, and José Manuel Martínez, CEO and Managing Director of Eiffage in Spain, paid a visit to the Belinchón solar facility (150 MW). We are constructing this plant for Elawan Energy in the province of Cuenca and it will be operational in just a few weeks.
Large-scale EPC project
Together with the Villanueva de los Escuderos solar plant (240 MW), also in the province of Cuenca, this is a large-scale EPC project. It includes substations and evacuation lines. There are approximately 950 people working on this project, and the entire Mechanical Assembly department is also involved.
In total, these plants will supply around 120,000 families per year; and will avoid the emission of around 300,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Among the numerous positive effects of these projects is the creation of local jobs in rural regions with high unemployment rates.

This visit is part of a series of meetings between the chair of the Eiffage Group and representatives from each country. The goal is to gain an understanding of the work performed by the Group’s European subsidiaries in Germany, Belgium and Spain.
