  • The number of workers onsite peaked at more than 1300 during the construction phase and 91 highly-qualified, permanent operation and maintenance jobs created.

Seville, December 5, 2012. Abengoa (MCE: ABG.B), the international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainable development in the energy and environment sectors, and the Japanese multinational ITOCHU Corporation, inaugurated today the first phase of the Extremadura Solar Complex. The complex is located in Logrosán, Cáceres, and is made up of two identical 50 MW parabolic trough plants. With the addition of the two similar plants currently under construction onsite, the complex will be completed in 2013 creating the largest solar complex in Spain with a total installed capacity of 200 MW.

Abengoa, who will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the plant, owns 70 % of the two newly inaugurated plants while ITOCHU controls the remaining 30 %.
