The project is part of the 270-MWp pipeline, to be developed in cooperation with Helios Nordic Energy AB, which Nordic Solar plans to construct in Sweden. With this additional project, 150 MWp of the 270-MWp pipeline is either ready-to-build or under construction.

The new ready-to-build project is located on Gotland, south of Visby, and occupies 60 hectares. Nordic Solar has acquired the project with all necessary permits and a grid connection agreement with the grid owner GEAB.

“We are very pleased to continue our cooperation with Helios Nordic Energy on this new project. Together we can help boost the production of renewable energy in Sweden. Adding this new project to our portfolio is part of our focus on accelerating the production of solar energy from large-scale solar parks in the region,” says Nikolaj Holtet Hoff, CEO of Nordic Solar.

High solar irradiation

“Helios is very excited to deliver yet another solar PV project to our trusted partner Nordic Solar. The project stands out being the first large scale project on Gotland, one of the places with the highest solar irradiation in Sweden. Our team really enjoys working closely with Nordic Solar, and we look forward to doing more together in the near future,” says Andreas Tunbjer, CEO of Helios Nordic Energy.

Nordic Solar recently initiated construction of its first solar park in Sweden, Lindesberg solar park, which is the first in a series of projects to be executed.

Over the coming years, Nordic Solar plans to establish solar parks in Sweden with a total capacity of several hundred MWp based on both the cooperation with Helios Nordic Energy AB and our own project development.
