The Czech Portfolio consists of four fully owned solar power plants, which is among the ten largest solar plants in the Czech Republic. One of the plants was built on a former waste dump of heavy metals, turning polluted land into a green activity.

Project key figures

  • 20 MWp
  • 81,7 ha
  • Fixed tilt system
  • Titan, SolarFun, SolarWorld, Sharp, REC
  • 1029 kWh/kWp
  • 20,500 MWh per annum
  • 16, 980 households in total

Ownership and PPA

PPA with EON and ČEZ for a period of 20 years

Project owners:

Scatec Solar ASA (Norway)

Project development

Scatec Solar’s own team provided all permits and licenses for construction, and the company worked in parallel on all four sites during the construction period. Progressed according to plan, where the original set deadline for financial close was met on all parks.

Project Execution

Constructions and grid connections took place during the winter months of 2010/2011. A successful inspection of operational readiness was made by regulatory representatives.

Operation and maintenance

Scatec Solar is the operator of the plant through O&M contracts with SMA and Schneider Electric.

We see this project as a premium showcase of how solar energy can utilize land and areas not suited for any other kind of activity
