Austrian solar developer CCE Group GmbH, or Clean Capital Energy, is looking to expand its portfolio in the Netherlands to more than 100 MW.
The group said so last week as it announced the acquisition by its Dutch unit, namely CCE The Netherlands, of the 2.5-MW Arendskerke solar park in Zeeland. The facility is located on the former clay pigeon shooting range near Goes and has a 30-year lease agreement with the municipality. It has been in operation since 2019.
CCE added that it plans further acquisitions of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects, either under construction or already in operation.
"CCE is on a strong financial footing and the strategy is also geared towards growth for the Netherlands. We are therefore very actively looking for further projects that are ready for construction or already in operation for our portfolio of solar power plants," said Cederik Engel, managing director of CCE The Netherlands.
In early November, the Vienna-based group also announced it has obtained the final building permit for a 40-MW project in Romania that should be realised by the end of 2024.
