Mytilineos SA, a Greek industrial conglomerate, has secured a tender to oversee the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) activities for a 490-megawatt portfolio of solar projects situated in the Western Macedonia region.
The contract encompasses eight distinct photovoltaic (PV) projects owned by Meton Energy SA, a joint venture between RWE Renewables Europe & Australia and Greek firm PPC Renewables. While the exact financial details of the contract were not disclosed in Mytilineos' official statement on Tuesday, the award underscores the company's expertise in the renewable energy sector.
Mytilineos will be responsible for executing all EPC activities for these projects, each with individual capacities ranging from 18 megawatts peak (MWp) to 135 MWp. Notably, all these projects are envisioned to be constructed within former lignite mining areas. Construction activities have already commenced and are anticipated to reach completion by the end of the following year.
This new contract closely follows Mytilineos' similar engagement with British investment manager Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners in the United Kingdom for a 373 MW solar project. Touted as the largest approved PV scheme in the UK, this project is on track to commence operations in early 2025.
