We cover the entire value chain in the photovoltaic sector

Alten Energías Renovables’s business encompasses practically the entire value chain in the photovoltaic industry, from designing the solar farms, developing greenfield projects and raising funds, as well as the integral management of the construction process, right through to the operation and maintenance of the power plants:

  • Design and development: accredited experience and capacity in the construction of greenfield projects in all the target zones: Southern Europe, Central America, South America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, etc… 
  • Investment and funding: As an investment group, with over €240m allotted to photovoltaic power plants since 2006, Alten Energías Renovables provides all the investment and financial services needed for rolling out the projects. This work is also backed by the accumulated expertise of the current executive team, which arranged total capex of €1.5bn (through project finance negotiated with commercial banks and development agencies).
  • Construction: Alten Energías Renovables guarantees seamless management of the construction process, from breaking ground until the provisional acceptance of the plant (PAC). The company pursues excellence in the quality of its facilities throughout this process as a strategy to increase its efficiency and productivity, hence guaranteeing the best possible results for investors. That is why it works exclusively with manufacturers and EPCs of the highest repute who can ensure these high quality standards are implemented throughout construction.
  • Operation and maintenance: One of the main goals of Alten Energías Renovables’s work is to optimise the operation of all its plants by enhancing the productivity and efficiency of the facilities and reducing maintenance costs as much as possible. The company has its own technical team with long-standing experience in the international photo-voltaic market for the operational management and the technical supervision.
