The solar park consists of around 120,000 modules, and took a year to build, with an investment of €40 million. Electricity generated from the 30 MW project will be fed into the grid under a power purchase agreement between developers Wirsol and Dutch utility Eneco.
“The inauguration of Sunport Delfzijl Solar Park is starting point for a succesful partnership with Groningen Seaports,” stated Wirsol CEO Peter Vest. “The park is an important showcase project in the Netherlands. We are playing a role in the growing Dutch market, we intend to continue expansion of renewable energy in the Netherlands.”
“It is becoming increasingly apparent that the availability of a green power supply is a prerequisite for the establishment of companies in the North Groningen Port Area, said Groningen Seaports Managing Director Harm Post. “This solar park is setting an important target for sustainable energy projects as stipulated in the Dutch Ministry of Environment and Infrastructure’s Green Deal.”
Wirsol has developed several other major projects in Europe, including the largest PV plant in Scandinavia.
