Large solar park to be built in Netherlands

With a capacity of 34 megawatt peak, the Almere solar park in the Dutch province of Flevoland is to be one of the largest in the country.

Last year, the German project planner PFALZSOLAR prevailed against a number of international competitors in a call for tenders issued by the HVC Group, one of the largest non-commercial waste management companies in the Netherlands, and won the contract to implement the large-scale project. The four-month construction period begins on March 21st.

"This project is, in many ways, a special one for us," says Lars Josten, Managing Director at PFALZSOLAR.

"It is not only our largest project to date, but also another milestone in our cooperation with HVC - a partner whose commitment to renewable energies is unparalleled for us.”

From its commissioning, the Almere solar park will produce around 30 million kilowatt hours of solar electricity per year, giving power for about 10,000 households and saving the climate 18,000 tons of CO2 every year compared with non-renewable forms of generation. For every kilowatt hour fed into the grid, the operator Zuyderzon Almere, a project company of the HVC Group & Sunwatt, will receives/ a feed-in-tariff determined in accordance with the Dutch SDE+ subsidy program.
