Ground will be officially broken on the 60 MW solar PV project, located an hour from Danish capital, Copenhagen, on August 11. The site is said to be ideal, due to its high irradiation levels and constant winds, which are beneficial for module cooling.
Construction is scheduled for completion this November, with grid connection expected before the end of 2015. Astronergy, which belongs to Chinas Chint Group, will supply the 239,000 necessary solar modules, while German-company SMA will provide 1,700 of its inverters. In addition to being Scandinavias largest solar project to date, when complete, it will also represent Wirsols biggest undertaking.
Wircon says the Danish solar market is "interesting" in the immediate future, with the company working on further projects in 2015 and 2016. No specifics were provided, however.
