Spaniards take shine to France
Dhamma Energy to build 87.5MW solar project in north of the country
Spanish renewables developer Dhamma Energy is to build a 87.5MW solar project on the site of a former NATO air base in France.
The company said it secured 36.5MW in the latest solar tender in France to add to the 51MW it had already won for the project earlier this year.
Construction of the facility, which is located at Laon-Athies in the Hauts-de-France region, will start next year.
Dhamma Energy co-founder Olivier Crambade said: “We are very pleased to be among the top winners in the two last solar tenders in France which were very competitive.”
The company already has 40MW of solar capacity operating in France and has a further 100MW coming online later this year and next.
