Ilmatar Energy is all set to build a 550MW solar park in Sweden.
It has been reported that this solar park could become one of Europe’s largest PV projects.
The project is located in the municipality of Motala in Östergötland. It has been informed that the project is going through the permitting process.
According to Ilmatar Solar, it has joined hands with the consultancy company Vinnergi to take the project forward towards construction.
Ilmatar Solar chief executive Christian Gustafsson was quoted in a statement, “Together with Vinnergi, we will become a stronger actor on the electricity market. Sustainable development is the common denominator throughout the entire processfrom agreement to planning and to the construction of the solar parks. “
He further stated that the company regards Vinnergi as a perfect sustainable and long-standing partner.
The company had earlier announced plans to build a 450MW solar park in Tönnersjö, Sweden.
Meanwhile, Vinnergi business development manager Martin Ansell-Schultz was quoted, “We have already received a favourable initial estimate from Svenska kraftnät, Sweden’s TSO, and the permit process and electricity network issues are in full swing.
He further remarked, “Ilmatar is an interesting partner who, in the long term, will be responsible for the park’s entire life cycle, from construction to electricity sales for years to come.”
The company is confident about Ilmatar as it can invest in large-scale production of electrical power directly.
