Dhamma Energy places its trust in Grupo Ortiz for the Athies-Samoussy solar farm
Dhamma Energy secured the contract for the Athies-Samoussy power plant in 2018, and has now chosen Grupo Ortiz as its “trusted partner” due to our “wide experience in solar power farm EPC contracts”.
The Group will be in charge of engineering, procurement, construction and operation and maintenance of the biggest solar farm in Hauts-de-France under the EPC contracting arrangement.
The project features a total installed power of 87.5 MWp, distributed around 5 farms each between 17 and 19 MWp. A total of 220,000 monocrystalline photovoltaic modules will be installed on fixed structures.
The Laon-Athies farm started life as a civil aerodrome with grass runways and became a military airfield in WWII changing from German to Allied hands. It was closed at the end of the war and was returned to the French government. It was finally closed in 1967 after being rebuilt and used as a NATO operations base in 1950. The solar farm on the site of this former aerodrome will be operating within 1 year.
