news item image
Ingeteam has been awarded a biomass plant operation and maintenance (O&M) contract by Greenalia.

The Basque company will maintain the Curtis plant in the Galician region of Teixeiro in A Coruña. This new contract doubles the power that Ingeteam maintains in biomass, reaching a total of 102 MW.

In 2018, Greenalia Biomass Power Curtis-Teixeiro S.L.U signed off on a €125 million loan to finance its biomass electric power production plant in A Coruna. The plant has a capacity of 50 MW and generates around 324 GWh per year from forest waste collected within a 100-kilometre radius of the plant.

This new contract will have a long-term duration with a comprehensive scope in terms of the O&M services of the Generation and Biomass Treatment Park, strengthening Ingeteam’s work in its services. It also expands the benefits Ingeteam can offer its clients as an independent multi-service provider of O&M services in renewable energy generation plants. The agreement will create new jobs, with Ingeteam hiring 40 people to provide O&M services at the Galician plant.
