From mid-March 2021, Paul Sidler will take over the position of Managing Director of EKZ Renewables AG from Christian Hürlimann, who has decided to leave EKZ after 13 years of successful work in the renewable energies sector in order to take on a new professional challenge.
The first, large, free-field solar plant of EKZ Renewables Ltd. was connected to the grid on 24 November. The “Algibicos” solar power plant in southern Spain is situated close to the city of Murcia and will produce somewhat more than 90 GWh of electricity per year. This is equivalent to the annual consumption of more than 20,000 households.
EKZ Renewable's newest and largest wind farm to date in Portugal - PESMA II - has just begun operation. PESMA II will generate approx. 70 GWh of energy per year in the future. This corresponds roughly to the consumption of 17,000 average Swiss households. The plant near Fátima - an hour's drive from Lisbon - could therefore theoretically supply all private households in the town of Dietikon and even some small municipalities with electricity.
EKZ Renewables has expanded its activities in the wind field of Neu Kosenow by acquiring the wind farm Neu Kosenow III from InvestInvent. The plant produces electricity for around 5,000 four-person households.
A formal breaking of the ground represented the beginning of the construction work for the 49.08 photovoltaic project "Algibicos" in the Spanish region of Murcia.
