Nordic Solar: new solar park in Portugal is ready


Nordic Solar, the Danish energy company, is expanding its portfolio with a new solar park in Portugal.

Nordic Solar: promoting greener energy:

The solar park, Ínsua, covers 80 hectares in southeastern Portugal and will provide electricity to approximately 35,000 homes. In fact, the Iberian Peninsula has a high demand for solar energy.

This new solar park is Nordic Solar’s largest solar park to date. It is part of the Danish solar energy company’s ambitions. Namely to promote a greener and more environmentally friendly energy with 1 GWp by 2025.

Nordic Solar is expanding its portfolio with a new solar park in Portugal, which will be the largest in the company’s history. The solar park, located in the Alentejo region, will provide electricity to 35,000 homes. It will thus make a substantial contribution to the Portuguese solar energy market.

Nikolaj Holtet Hoff, CEO of Nordic Solar, states:

“Nordic Solar is determined to make green energy accessible to even more households in Europe. Portugal has set an ambitious goal to reduce its CO2 emissions by doubling its renewable energy production by 2030. Solar energy will play an important role in the transition of the country, which is one of the sunniest countries in Europe.

Exploiting every ray of sunlight

The solar park was developed and built by Chint Solar, a leading player in project development, financing, implementation and operation of solar parks. Although the sun is abundant in Portugal, the new solar park was designed with optimization in mind. It uses a single axis tracking system, which can follow the sun’s rays from sunrise to sunset:

“Ínsua is one of the first solar parks where we work so closely with a developer, in this case Chint Solar, during the creation of the park. The tracker technology allows us to harvest most of the sun’s rays, and this is an important signal to send to our shareholders and the local community in Portugal, which allows us to build an 80-hectare solar park,” explains Nikolaj Holtet Hoff, CEO.

In addition to working with Chint Solar on the Ínsua project, Nordic Solar will also cooperate with Our New Energy as advisors to the PPA, Axpo as a PPA partner and financial partner Banco Sabadel, S.A.

A growing demand for solar energy

Nordic Solar is ready to meet the growing demand for green energy by supplying 1 GWp by 2025. That’s three times more production than in 2021 and enough to supply half a million homes with sustainable energy.

Nordic Solar’s CEO concludes:

“We have grown significantly since Nordic Solar A/S was founded in 2010. With our 326 MWp of solar panel capacity across Europe, we are one of the 50 largest solar players in Europe. We are focused on new acquisitions and other opportunities for Nordic Solar A/S and our shareholders. Solar energy is more vital than ever.

In addition, Nordic Solar is committed to meeting the growing demand for solar energy in a sustainable manner.

Germany: New Solar Projects

Ampyr Solar Europe and Belectric have reached an agreement to build a set of several large-scale solar projects in Germany over the next two years. New solar parks will be created in Germany Two of the solar parks are located in the vicinity of Brandenburg. The largest solar farm will have an installed capacity of 85 MW. The second plant will consist of six sub-zones, with a total capacity of 65 MW. Construction of the two solar farms is expected to begin by the end of 2022. Belectric and Ampyr: a strategic collaboration Belectric brings to the project its experience in the construction, operation and maintenance of solar power plants. The group is one of the leading providers of EPC services in Europe in the field of development and operation of solar power plants. It has built more than 4 GW of solar power capacity worldwide. Thorsten Blanke, CEO of Belectric, explains: "Our agreement with Ampyr is an excellent basis for implementing German projects in the future. We are excited to expand our collaboration." Belectric is a member of the Elevion group. The group is among the German market leaders in this segment. It consists of approximately 60 consolidated companies...

United States: New Energy Storage Systems

In a press release issued in mid-June, the U.S. company Borrego Energy announced the progress of one of its projects. So the U.S.-based company announced the completion of 15 energy storage systems in Massachusetts and New York. These infrastructures will notably allow the collection of energy from local solar production. American ecological dynamics First, solar systems range in size from 1.6 MW to 12 MW. After that, the storage facilities built will vary between 910 KW/1.7 MWh and 9 MW/17 MWh. Once fully interconnected, the system will produce enough clean electricity per year to power approximately 10,885 homes. In addition, these projects are among Borrego's first DC-coupled solar and storage facilities. The technology used allows the solar modules to generate up to 30% more energy annually. Moreover, it is expected to offset 82,659 tons of CO2 emissions in the United States. In addition, Borrego's Vice President of Solutions, John duPont, spoke about this new project coming to fruition. In a press release, he discusses the path taken to conclude these energy solutions: "We have worked with our product partners for years to develop and test the hardware for the DC-coupled system. The effort has been similar for the power management...

Three KGAL Solar Parks approved in Italy

The German KGAL Group is one of the pioneers of investment in renewable energies. In the Italian market, it is developing solar and wind farms with a total capacity of over 1.2 GW. It will start the construction of three solar parks with a total capacity of about 380 MWp that will join the grid from the first quarter of 2024. The institutional investors of the KGAL ESPF 4 and KGAL ESPF 5 funds will participate in these promising projects. Three new solar parks in Italy Italy is one of the most attractive markets in Europe for solar photovoltaic projects. In fact, it combines high solar radiation with an above-average electricity price. In addition, the Italian government has encouraged the expansion of renewable energy production. New legislative initiatives have been introduced, including the simplification of approval procedures. The share of green energy in local consumption should therefore increase from 20% in 2020 to 30% in 2030. Michael Ebner, Managing Director of Sustainable Infrastructure at KGAL, explains: "KGAL, which is one of the largest investors in the solar photovoltaic sector in Italy, is benefiting from the growing momentum of its renewable energy funds and is thus making a significant contribution to...

Svea Solar Invests in Large Solar Parks

Svea Solar is expanding its Swedish platform and taking its first steps in building solar parks abroad. Svea Solar partners with CarVal Svea Solar is one of the fastest growing energy companies in Europe. The Swedish-based company welcomes CarVal Investors as a new investor. The investment of 100 million euros is thus intended for the expansion of large-scale solar parks. This applies to parks in Sweden, but also to solar construction projects abroad. The investment on behalf of funds managed by CarVal will enable Svea Solar to become an independent power producer. The company plans to develop and build 500 MW of solar projects. This will add a substantial amount of clean energy to the European energy mix. "By building utility-scale solar parks, we get scale on solar energy and make a substantial contribution to the energy system.
