Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic) is developing a 100MW photovoltaic (PV) solar plant at its polycarbonate plant in Spain, which will be the world’s first large-scale chemicals plant to run entirely on clean energy.

The PV solar facility will be developed by Spanish utility company Iberdrola, and is expected to contain 263,000 PV panels.

The plant will be the largest industrial renewable energy scheme in Europe.

Sabic is planning to have up to 4GW of solar or wind capacity installed at its sites globally by 2025. Sabic’s Home of Innovation centre in the Saudi capital Riyadh has been completely solar powered since 2015, and the firm installed solar plants at facilities in India and Thailand in 2019.
