Jufa buys two PV plants totaling 17 MW in Czech Republic

The Czech investment company Jufa has agreed to buy two solar plants with a combined capacity of 17 MW in the Czech Republic.

One of the two facilities, named FVE Dobré pole, has a capacity of 4 MW and is located in the district of Mikulov, while the second solar park, with a capacity of 13 MW, is the country’s eight largest PV plant and is located in the district of Chomutov, the company said.

Overall, including this transaction, Jufa’s portfolio of operational PV plants has reached 69 MW. The company, which currently owns 22 solar facilities, had acquired its largest PV project in November, the 22 MW Brno Tuřany project.

“The Jufa group is planning further acquisitions in the Czech solar market. We are the owners of solar power plants with a totally transparent ownership structure and we always reinvest our profits in the Czech Republic,” said the company’s co-owner Jiri Fast.

The Czech Republic reached a cumulative installed PV capacity of around 2.08 GW at the end of 2016, according to provisional statistics provided to pv magazine by local association Solární Asociace. Most of this capacity comes from MW-sized PV plants that were installed between 2008 and 2013, when a very generous FIT scheme was closed.
