Nordic Solar Initiates Construction of 92-MWp Solar Park in Sweden

Danish solar company Nordic Solar A/S said Wednesday it has commenced construction of the 92-MWp Hultsfred solar park in Sweden, its second and largest so far in the country.

The solar power plant is expected to be connected to the grid at the end of 2025 and to generate 100 GWh of power per year.


The project will link up to the grid via a new large transformer substation located nearby, of which E.ON Sweden broke ground with the help of Nordic Solar at the end of April. This substation will connect several solar park projects totalling nearly 200 MWp, making it the largest connection of solar parks to the electricity grid in Sweden so far.


Nordic Solar, which is already building the 22-MWp Lindesberg solar park in Sweden, now has 114 MWp under construction in the country, out of its Swedish development portfolio of more than 600 MWp. The portfolio is made up of both own project development and projects in partnership with Swedish solar developer Helios Nordic Energy AB, including Lindesberg and Hultsfred.


“Sweden is one of our neighbouring countries and an important country for us to invest in,” Nordic Solar chief executive Nikolaj Holtet Hoff said and added that the project in Hultsfred, in southeastern Sweden, shows how Sweden’s sunlit regions play an important role in promoting solar energy in the Nordic countries

Nordic Solar says it currently operates almost 500 MWp of solar parks in Europe and has a further close to 2.3 GWp under development and construction.
