The local government board of the City of Campos del Río has approved the declaration of public interest to accelerate the necessary procedures for the installation in the municipality of what will be in 2020 the largest photovoltaic park in Europe.
The project called 'Gestiona Campos 460' will invest 300 million euros in Campos del Río for the installation of 1,480,000 solar panels and the construction of three electrical substations.
One of REE SE CAMPOS and two associated;
that of the company Iberdrola STR RIO MULA and a third private of the solar park ST GESTIONA.
The project was announced this afternoon by the mayor of Campos del Río, María José Pérez Cerón, together with Vicente Gadea, promoter of the project and representative of the investment firm 100% Spanish capital, the Murcia GESTIONA, engineering expert in photovoltaic projects in the Region of Murcia with a decade and a half of experience in the sector and which currently develops projects that reach 1,000 MW leading the national and European market.
'Gestiona Campos 460' will be developed on 1.200 hectares of land that are located in the I and II polygons located in the Belledite, Capitana and Casa Gracia sites, in the municipality of Campos del Río.

3 Substations and a park of solar panels in the same land without an evacuation line
Another unique feature of the project is that it is the only one in the world that lacks an electricity generation evacuation line that reaches the receiving substation through a few meters of buried wiring.
Something possible when the whole project is built on the same land, so that the visual impact is reduced, and it protects birds from impacts.
The receiving substation of the energy produced by the park of photovoltaic panels will have a capacity of 460 Mw and next to it the company Iberdrola will raise another one that will generate energy and will serve all the populations of the region of the Mula River, the municipalities of Las Torres of Cotillas, Alguazas, Molina de Segura, Ceutí and Archena, so the solar energy produced in Campos del Río will reach more than 120,000 homes.
A third substation, SE CAMPOS, located in plot 93 of the polygon II of Campos del Río, will be in charge of receiving the energy that will reach the Spanish Electricity Network.
The mayor of Campos del Rio, María José Pérez Cerón, highlighted "the importance of this great project, not only for the municipality where it will generate 400 jobs, also for the Region of Murcia where the energy produced in the largest park will arrive Solar of Europe that has chosen Campos del Río to settle and generate, in addition to clean and ecological energy, a stable, sustainable development and wealth for our municipality.
