Czech solar energy specialist Solek Holding has expanded its Latin American operations to Colombia, where it is working on two 11.8-MW solar projects, the firm announced in a LinkedIn post this week.
The projects are El Encanto and La Union, both located in El Paso in the department of Cesar. They are currently in the permitting process.
“These projects mark our first guaranteed connections in the country. We expect to start construction in December 2023,” Solek said in the announcement.
Solek has carried out solar projects in the Czech Republic and other countries in Europe, but it is mainly associated with work in Chile.
The announcement of the new market entry comes some weeks after the company completed a fundraiser, netting USD 379 million (EUR 346.1m) in total proceeds to continue its development in Chile and support expansion plans.
