  • Portuguese varied team MCA has just recently finished two solar photovoltaic (PV) parks in Angola with a mixed installed capacity of 285 MWp as part of a worldwide consortium that established the projects.

MCA has actually led the implementation phase in engineering, procurement as well as construction, it claimed in a declaration.

The solar duo consists of the 189-MWp solar plant in Biopio, Catumbela municipality, which is now the largest one in both Angola and all of sub-Saharan Africa, and also the 96-MWp Baia Farta center.

Together, the two solar parks can generate enough power to supply some 1.8 million people. They become part of Angola's 2018-2022 National Development Plan to expand the nation's energy production sources.

As revealed in 2020, MCA is leading the building and construction of a total amount of 7 solar farms in Angola with an integrated capacity of 370 MWp. The remainder of the plants should be functional by the end of the year, according to the latest announcement.
