Engineering

At SÓLIDA we are experts in renewable energy projects and their electrical evacuation infrastructure,also incorporating hybridisation and storage solutions.

We collaborate with our clients by providing a thorough service of engineering and technical advisory throughout the whole life-cycle of the project, from its conception and development to its construction and commissioning phase.

Development Phase

During the development phase, SÓLIDA acts as a strategic partner to the developers, following the projects from their origin until they reach the “ready to build” (RTB) state, with a clear focus in project optimisation, technological innovation, compliance with local, regional and national regulatory requirements to obtain the necessary permits, licences and administrative authorisations.

At this stage, SOLIDA´s team, made up of specialists in solar and wind projects, substations and lines, works in a coordinated manner to achieve the client’s objectives, offering services such as:

  • Pre-feasibility studies
  • Grid access & connection
  • Resource & Yield assessment studies.
  • Optimised grid connection alternatives.
  • Hybridisation and storage studies.
  • Greenfield co-development agreements
  • Conceptual engineering for CAPEX/OPEX/LCOE.
  • Permitting Engineering
  • Advanced basic engineering for EPC tender.
  • Grid code studies
  • Land assessment studies:
  • Hydrological and drainage study.
  • Fill & Cut Study.
  • Topographic survey.
  • Geotechnical study and pull out test.

Construction Phase

Once the “ready to build” (RTB) status has been accomplished we undergo the construction phase of the projects, in which both developers and EPC contractors trust SÓLIDA to achieve the highest quality and safety standards, the best cost optimisation, and to comply with every deadline within time.

The demand at this stage is maximum, and it is here where the deep technical knowledge and accumulated experience brings out the true value of SÓLIDA, an engineering firm 100% specialised in renewables.

In addition to the office team of engineers, in this construction phase it is worth highlighting the work of our site supervision professionals, characterised by having a pragmatic and decisive approach aimed at achieving the client’s objectives.

Our capabilities for solar, wind, substation and line projects include:

  • Technical Specifications for EPC/BOS/BOP/Main Equipment tender
  • Technical advisory for contract negotiation
  • Detailed engineering for Construction
  • Foundation Calculations and Design
  • Wind turbines
  • Fix & Tracker structures
  • Grid code studies
  • Owner´s engineering
  • EPC Management (EPCM)

Featured projects

Commissioning Phase

With regards to the project start-up and operational phase, technological expertise and knowledge of the requirements and procedures required by each public organisation for the grid connection becomes essential.

In this stage, SÓLIDA provides services such as:

  • Preparation of As-built documentation.
  • Review of commissioning protocols.
  • Supervision of trials and commissioning tests.
  • Preparation of Operation and Maintenance (O&M) manuals.
  • Technical support for the legalisation of the project and connection to the grid network.
