The photovoltaic plant is expected to be installed in Pinhal do Conde to produce clean energy for distribution by the national grid.
A 44-hectare photovoltaic plant with 49,523 vertical solar modules is in the licensing phase, the Aveiro district municipality said on Tuesday.
If approved by the Environment Ministry, Portuguese Environment Agency and the North Regional Coordination and Development Commission, the structure will be installed in Pinhal do Conde to produce clean energy for distribution by the national grid.
The company responsible for the project is FF Ventures – FFNEV Portugal Lda, which, the mayor of Feira said, foresees to reach a production of 40.500 Megawatts per hour each year.
The social-democrat Emídio Sousa said that the project results from a public tender opened by the state, which FF Ventures won, through the proposal of an operating contract that implies a dismantling plan to leave the area, at the end of its useful life, in a similar situation to the one found at the beginning of the process, or, at least, free of any damage.
