MET Group commissioned two solar power plants in Hungary, SEE Energy News
Swiss-based MET Group said that it has commissioned two solar power plants with combined installed capacity of 96 MW in Hungary.
Gerjen solar power plant with the output of 51 MW is located in southern Hungary, while 45 MW Sojtor solar power plant is in western Hungary. The two facilities cover a combined area of 170 hectares.
The electricity produced by the two solar power plants is transferred into the national network via newly built high-voltage substations. The annual generation of the two plants should be enough to cover the demand of about 50,000 households.
MET Group is planning to install 2 GW of renewable capacity by 2026 and has undertaken several steps to achieve this goal. In November 2022, MET Group established a joint venture with a unit of Singaporean conglomerate Keppel Corp to target 1 GW of solar and onshore wind capacity in Western Europe.
In addition, the group entered markets in Spain, Italy, Poland and Romania through the acquisition of renewable energy projects.
