The Spanish engineering company takes another step in its international expansion and opens a new office in Porto.
SÓLIDA opens a new office in Portugal
Following the recent opening of an office in Italy earlier this year, SÓLIDA, has taken a significant step forward in its European expansion by opening its own office in Porto, further consolidating its presence in the Portuguese country, where it has been involved in projects since 2011.
SÓLIDA has decided to strengthen its commitment to the Portuguese market at a time of unprecedented growth. The Portuguese government recently presented an update of its National Energy and Climate Plan 2023-2030 (PNEC), pledging to have 20.4 GW of photovoltaic capacity operational by 2030, more than doubling from the 9 GW in the previous plan. This increase in investment in renewable energy offers exceptional opportunities for companies in the sector.
Commenting on the opening of the new office, Andrés Medina, Director of Business Development at SÓLIDA, said:
“At SÓLIDA, we are aware of the importance of local knowledge when it comes to providing engineering and consultancy services; Portugal is a strategic market for us and this new subsidiary will allow us to strengthen our positioning and expand the capabilities of our local team in the country, where we already have around 4 GW of experience.”
He also highlighted that SÓLIDA is currently working on the largest project in the country, underlining its commitment to the Portuguese market and its ability to take on large-scale projects.
The new office in Porto will also serve as a strategic base for SÓLIDA’s expansion into Portuguese-speaking African countries, such as Mozambique, Angola and Cape Verde. These countries have shown a growing interest in the development of renewable energy infrastructures, and SÓLIDA is already closing the first contracts to bring its experience and know-how to these regions.
With this new opening, the company now has 5 offices worldwide (Spain, Brazil, Chile, Italy and Portugal), and new openings are not ruled out in the short and medium term.
