Abreu Advogados advised Iberdola in obtaining environmental licensing from Portuguese Agency of the Environment (Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente) for the construction of the largest solar photovoltaic power plant in Europe in Santiago do Cacém.

This undertaking, with an electricity production capacity of 1.2 gigawatts and an investment of around EUR 800 million, will be called Fernando Pessoa and will provide clean, cheap and locally produced energy sufficient to meet the annual needs of around 430,000 homes.
