So far, 50 workers from different companies have been involved in construction. They include regional suppliers such as Ibérica de Aparellajes and Castellón-based Transportes y Excavaciones Vicente Prades.

Iberdrola secured administrative authorization for the project at the end of July. It will soon also install 32.5 MW of solar power at its combined-cycle plants in Arcos de la Frontera (Andalusia), Castejón (Navarra), Aceca (Castilla-La Mancha), Castellón, Santurtzi (Basque Country), and Escombreras (Region of Murcia). The company estimates that the arrays will generate around 50,000 MWh of electricity per year.
