On June 5, Spanish energy developer Solatio announced the construction of a 4 GW solar power plant in Brazil, which will also be the largest solar power plant in the country. Solatio President Pedro Vaquer said the plant will be located in Piaui state in northeastern Brazil with a total investment of nearly 10.3 billion reais (about 1.79 billion euros).

According to the plan, the first phase of the project will have a capacity of 3 gigawatts, and construction will start in mid-2025 and be completed by 2028. The solar power plant was built to power Solatio's green hydrogen and green ammonia plants located in the same area.

In December 2023, Solatio and Green Energy Park, a green ammonia producer in Croatia, announced the construction of a green hydrogen plant in ZPE(Export Processing Zone), Piaui, with an expected installed capacity of 20 GW. When completed, it will be one of the largest green hydrogen projects in the world. According to the preliminary plan, the green hydrogen project will start construction by the end of 2024, the first phase is expected to be completed in 2027, and the subsequent construction will continue until 2035.

To date, Solatio has obtained an environmental permit to produce 11.4 GW of green hydrogen and green ammonia in Piaui. The Green hydrogen plant is partly powered by the aforementioned solar power plant and partly by Solatio's other power generation facilities in southeastern Nasgeras state. In addition, the green hydrogen produced by the plant will be mainly supplied to the European market.

With more than 20 years of experience in the photovoltaic sector and more than 120 projects in Europe, Solatio has been present in Brazil since 2009 and is now the largest developer of solar projects in Latin America. Editor/Xu Shengpeng
