Claritas Greek solar portfolio up to 591 MW, construction to ‘start by late ’21’

Claritas, a pan-European renewable developer, acquired new RES production licenses during May for Greek solar projects representing 277 MW, significantly boosting its solar energy portfolio for the Greek market to 591 MW.

The company expects to be ready for its development of new solar energy projects, all clustered in northern Greece, by the end of 2021. Claritas plans to install latest-generation modules and inverters for these projects.

The company believes its solar projects will offer a sustainable and commercially viable solution amidst the country’s ongoing energy transition, prompting radical energy-mix changes, according to Dirk Lamottke, chief executive of Claritas Investments.

Commenting on the company’s investment plan for Greece, Nikos Siafakas, Director of Project Development, Greece, noted: “We want to finalize the remaining development steps in the new year and get ready for construction before next winter.”

Claritas, which has been successfully developing a large PV portfolio around Europe, entered the Greek solar market in 2018 and has since worked on the development of major-scale solar energy facilities through its subsidiary Claritas Hellas Energy BV.
