South Korea's Samsung plans a 50 million lev ($34.9 million/25.6 million euro) photovoltaic power plant in the municipality of Letnitsa, in northern Bulgaria, local media reported on Monday.
The solar park will be built on 50 hectares of municipal land, news daily Trud (www.trud.bg) said.
The construction works for the solar plant with a nominal capacity of 14.5 megawatts are expected to be completed within eight months.
Three electrical transmission lines will be built to connect the solar plant to the country’s power grid, Trud quoted Letnitsa mayor Krasimir Dzhonev as saying.
