German solar contractor INTEC Energy Solutions and solar panel maker and project developer CHINT Solar will jointly deliver engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for a 64-MWp photovoltaic (PV) project in Sweden.
The duo has secured the award from Swedish solar developer Alight AB, further expanding their existing partnership, INTEC said on Thursday.
Under the deal, INTEC and CHINT will be in charge of building the solar park in Hallstavik, outside Norrtalje, which will be owned by Alight and will supply electricity to local food retail group Axfood AB (STO:AXFO). The plant’s operations and maintenance (O&M) are also covered by the contract.
Once commissioned, the Hallstavik park will be able to produce around 63 GWh of electricity annually, or enough to supply more than 12,600 homes. The plant will cover an area of 71 ha (175 acres), consisting of around 92,000 solar panels.
Project completion is planned for the second quarter of 2024. Axfood will buy the solar farm’s output for a minimum period of 12 years under a power purchase agreement (PPA) signed in June.
