Construction starts on Sweden’s largest solar farm

Neoen and Alight have started building the 100MW Hultsfred solar farm in Sweden, which will purportedly be the country’s largest solar installation upon completion.

Neoen, a French-based independent power producer (IPP), and Alight, a Sweden-based solar developer and IPP, said this morning that they have started construction on their jointly developed and owned 100 MW Hultsfred solar PV project in Småland, Sweden.

The companies said in a press release that Bouygues Energies & Services and Solkompaniet will lead the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the Nordic project. The project will feature low-carbon PV panels surrounding the Hultsfred airport runway, connecting to utility E.ON, with the CEO of E.ON Energidistribution noting its significance for southern Sweden’s electricity supply.

The developers aim to make the project operational by 2025, with 95% of the energy sold to H&M Group through a long-term power purchase agreement, supporting the retailer’s renewable energy goals. The specific use of the energy remains unspecified.
