German project developer solarhybrid is preparing to start work on its largest PV project to date after Fürstenwalde’s municipal council awarded preliminary planning permission for its 150MW project.
The €280 million system’s location is a former army airport in Neuhardenberg and is the ninth military site solarhybrid has converted in the past two years. Installation at the 340-hectare site will begin next summer, with grid connection pencilled in for December. Financing and development is to be coordinated by solarhybrid subsidiary sohy Neuhardenberg.
“There are different options available, including full equity, full debt, and there’s high interest in the project,” solarhybrid's chief financial officer, Albert Klein, told Bloomberg.
The site will also double up as the new home of solarhybrid's operations and maintenance department, housing its offices and warehouse.
