Swedish utility Göteborg Energi and ABB have agreed to connect Sweden’s largest solar park to the grid.
The solar park in Säve, outside Gothenburg, will be the largest so far in Sweden covering 11-hectares, a little less than 16 football fields, with a capacity of 5.5 MW. It is expected to generate approximately 5,000 kWh of electricity a year, enough to satisfy the yearly electricity needs of 1,100 households.
ABB is delivering a substation with switchgear, distribution transformers and relays, together with control equipment and inverters.
The plant, located near Säve airport, is part of a major investment in solar energy made by the Swedish utility and is expected to be commissioned in November 2018.
