, SEE Energy News

German solar developer IBC SOLAR Energy has signed contracts for the realization of two solar power plants in Hungary with a combined installed capacity of 96 MW. IBC SOLAR is responsible for the planning as well as component procurement and construction (EPC – Engineering, Procurement and Construction) of the plants. The projects are scheduled to start construction in the spring of 2022.

The signing of the contract between IBC SOLAR Energy and MET Group was the kick-off for the construction of two new solar parks in the municipalities of Gerjen and Sojtor. With a capacity of 51 MW, the solar power plant in Gerjen will generate approximately 66,400 MWh of electricity per year, while the solar park in Sojtor, with a nominal capacity of 45 MW, will generate around 57.700 MWh of electricity per year. Together, this corresponds to the estimated annual electricity consumption of more than 35,000 households. As the main contractor, IBC SOLAR will provide the solar parks as ready-to- use projects. Both parks are scheduled for completion in autumn of 2022.

The realization of the new solar power plants in Gerjen and Sojtor are not the first joint projects of IBC SOLAR and the investor MET Group. In 2020, the successful partnership already resulted in the largest operating solar parks in Hungary at that time. The park with a nominal capacity of 43 MW is located in the Kabai municipality.
