    Vattenfall breaks ground on 79-MWp agri-PV project in Germany

    September 21, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 21 (Renewables Now) - Swedish state-owned utility Vattenfall AB has started the construction of a 79-MWp subsidy-free agrivoltaic (agri-PV) park in northern Germany.

      As part of the Tuetzpatz project, solar modules will be installed on various support systems spanning a total of 93 hectares, Vattenfall said on Wednesday.

      The facility, located in the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, is expected to go online in 2024 and combine the generation of clean power with farming and the production of free-range eggs.

      The electricity will be supplied to Deutsche Telekom’s subsidiary Power and Air Condition Solution Management GmbH (PASM) under a previously signed ten-year power purchase agreement (PPA).

      The solar park is expected to be able to feed 2,500 mobile phone towers.

      Vattenfall said it aims to gain further practical experience for future commercial projects of this kind. The Swedish utility is already testing the agri-PV concept as part of a 0.7 MWp pilot project in the Netherlands.

      Vattenfall made the final investment decision for the Tuetzpatz project in February. Since then, some of the project's parameters have been further specified in the course of planning, the company said.
