UK developer WElink Energy has kicked off construction of a 221MW solar park in Portugal.

China Triumph International Engineering (CTIEC) is contracted for the work on the £200m Solara4 project at Vaqueiros in the Algarve.

The facility will be Europe’s largest unsubsidised solar plant, the developer said.

WElink Group chief executive Barry O’Neill said: “We are delighted to be in a position to commence construction on our flagship Solara4 project, demonstrating that industrial scale clean-energy can be profitable without government subsidies and is a mature technology.”

Solara4 will feature 850,000 solar modules and is expected to come online by mid-2019.
