VERBUND AG has acquired the Illora solar project in Southern Spain from BayWa r.e.

The Illora solar park is located in Pinos Puente close to Granada. The park is divided into three photovoltaic blocks with a planned total capacity of 147.6 MWp. Illora will produce approximately 260 GWh of green electricity per year. Construction of the solar park commenced in May 2021, with commissioning planned for the first quarter of 2022.

In addition to entering the Spanish market, this transaction marks an important step toward achieving this goal.
