Danish solar firm Nordic Solar A/S has commenced the construction of its inaugural solar farm in Sweden, marking a strategic move into the Swedish renewable energy market. The 22-megawatt peak (MWp) solar facility, named Lindesberg, is being developed in partnership with Swedish company Helios Nordic Energy AB.
Situated near the town of Lindesberg in southern Sweden, the project spans a 44-hectare (108.7 acres) site, incorporating over 31,000 solar modules mounted on tracker systems. Nordic Solar aims to connect the Lindesberg solar farm to the grid by the third quarter of 2024.
This venture serves as the initial step in Nordic Solar's broader plan to establish a significant presence in the Swedish renewable energy sector. The collaboration with Helios Nordic Energy is expected to yield several hundred MWp through a series of projects, with Lindesberg being the pioneering development.
Nordic Solar envisions subsequent projects in Sweden, either in partnership with Helios or drawn from its independent development pipeline. The cumulative output of these endeavors, in conjunction with Helios, is anticipated to reach approximately 270 MWp. This initiative aligns with Nordic Solar's commitment to expanding its renewable energy portfolio and contributing to the ongoing transition to sustainable energy solutions in the region.
