February 20 (Renewables Now) - Finland’s Savosolar Oyj announced today it has signed a contract worth more than EUR 1.3 million (USD 1.4m) to build a solar heating system in the commune of Creutzwald in eastern France.

The Finnish solar thermal systems supplier was awarded the job by a subsidiary of French energy company La Francaise d l’Energie SA (EPA:LFDE), which will own and operate the system.

The heat will be sold to ENES Creutzwald, the municipal-owned utility that runs the district heating network.

The solar heating system will span more than 5,900 square metres (63,507 sq ft) and generate over 2,600 MWh annually.

Savosolar will deliver most of the plant’s elements including the solar collector field, piping, heat exchange station and automation, the company said.

The system delivery and construction are expected to commence this spring, while the hand-over is due in the summer of 2020.
