MOROCCO/GREECE/PORTUGAL. In a press release published on 25 April, the French company Voltalia announced that it had won a call for tenders for the construction and operation of two Moroccan solar sites in Aïn Beni Mathar (69 megawatts) and Guercif (48 megawatts). "They will make it possible to cover the energy needs equivalent to the annual consumption of 290,000 inhabitants," says Voltalia.
 
Work should begin at the end of 2023. The group has been present in Morocco since 2015, with "nearly 100 megawatts of authorised projects, mainly in wind and hydroelectricity, and more than 400 megawatts under development, mainly solar".
 
In March 2022, Voltalia commissioned 12 MW of photovoltaic projects in Greece.
 
In early April, Voltalia announced that it had won a tender to build a floating solar power plant in Portugal, near the Cabril dam in Sertã, with a total capacity of around 35 megawatts. The plant is expected to be commissioned in 2026.
 
Voltalia produces and sells electricity from its wind, solar, hydro, biomass and storage facilities. The group has more than 2 GW of capacity in operation and under construction and a portfolio of projects under development with a total capacity of 11.1 GW. With 1,300 employees in some twenty countries, Voltalia works extensively around the Mediterranean: France, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Egypt, Greece, Albania and Jordan. Voltalia is majority owned by Creadev, an investment fund of the Mulliez family (Auchan).
 
In 2021, Voltalia posted a net profit (Group share) of €1.6m for annual revenues of €398.6m.
