Eiffage Energía has extensive experience and know-how in high-capacity solar projects. Now, in partnership with Schneider Electric, Eiffage Energía is responsible for the construction of Paradise Park, where it will also carry out the maintenance of the plant for the next 20 years.
Neoen won the project of Paradise Park in a tender launched by the Public Services Regulatory Office of Jamaica and is the majority shareholder in this project together with MPC Caribbean Clean Energy Fund and Rekmaniar Frontier Ventures.
This new contract demonstrates Eiffage’s progress in the field of solar power generation with more than 1.5 GW installed worldwide.

Eiffage and its Spanish subsidiary, Eiffage Energía, have already participated in other projects in association with Neoen, such as the construction and operation of the Cestas photovoltaic park, in the southwest of France, with a capacity of 300 MWp.
Outside France, Eiffage built the solar plants of Quilapilun in Chile, near Santiago (110 MWp), Ten Merino in Senegal (30 MWp) and Nouakchott in Mauritania (50 MWp). The Group will deliver the solar plant Huatacondo in Chile (98 MWp) this year.
