The 120-MWn park is part of one of the most ambitious projects within Aena's Climate Action Plan.

The Aena Board of Directors awarded the Photovoltaic Solar Plant at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport to Construcciones San José for €99,113,906.97 and 50 months at its last meeting.

This action will design, build, and start up the Airport photovoltaic solar park, which will have 142.42 MWp peak power and 120 MWn nominal power. The winning bidder will engineer, supply, build, commission, and maintain the park.

Aena's Photovoltaic Plan will provide 100% of its airports' electricity from renewable sources by 2026, and AS Madrid-Barajas' solar photovoltaic plant is one of the world's most powerful. This plant will supply 24.8% of Aena airport photovoltaic facilities.

The facilities will cover 353 football fields on various airport plots. Its 235,000 photovoltaic modules will generate 212 GWh of energy annually, enough to power 65,000 homes.

These facilities were built with land availability in mind and to maximize solar energy harvesting due to their geographic location.

Another Photovoltaic Plant with 7.5 nominal MW of self-consumption will be built at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport and commissioned in 2023.
