project name Alcoutim

Located at a site in Alcoutim near the Vale do Guadiana National Park in southern Portugal, the plant consists of 82 CPV systems supplied by Soitec. Construction of the facility was announced in December 2013. Its operations started up in spring 2014. The CPV power plant was funded by a partnership including Enovos, Luxembourg’s main energy supplier operating also in Germany, France and Belgium, and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, a Portuguese private institution of public utility whose statutory aims are in the fields of arts, charity, education and science. The CPV power plant’s installation has been managed by EIP (Electricidade Industrial Portuguesa) while Luz.On is the project developer, both being also shareholders of the project company.
