The solar PV market in the Netherlands is one of the most promising in Europe. One month ago, the government awarded incentives to PV projects with a combined capacity of 2.3 GW under the SDE + subsidy program.
German project developer Goldbeck Solar is now entering the market. In the industrial area of Veendam, the EPC company is currently building a turnkey PV plant for Astronergy with around 15.5 MW of power. The project is scheduled to start commercial operations by the end of December, Goldbeck said on Thursday.
The project is the first cooperation between Goldbeck Solar and Astronergy, which is a unit of the Chinese Chint Group. The modules for the project will be supplied by the Chinese company, while the inverters will be provided by Sungrow and the transformers by Schneider Electric.
The annual production from the facility is estimated at around 14.5 MWh. The solar power is fed completely into the public grid.
“On the basis of attractive subsidies for renewable energies, solar power will become one of the leading technologies in the Netherlands and the Netherlands will be a very interesting market for Goldbeck Solar,” explained Björn Lamprecht, Managing Director of the company. He praised the policy of the country to achieve the renewable targets by 2020. Goldbeck Solar now wants to transfer its know-how acquired in England to the Netherlands in the realization of major projects. “We can be the partner who supports local project developers in their realization,” Lamprecht continued.
Goldbeck and Astronergy also intend to build further PV plants in the Netherlands. The module manufacturer has already secured further projects, which are to be implemented from next year. “For Astronergy, the Netherlands is a focus market,” said Oliver Schweininger CEO of Astronergy. “The company wants to be active as a project developer as well as a module supplier.”

Should production prognosis not be 14.5 GWh/yr > specific yield 935 kWh/kWp.yr ?
You are right Peter! GWh are correct. It seems to be a typing error. Best regards Tobias Friedrich, Goldbeck Solar GmbH
