Dutch investor installs 3.8 MWp photovoltaic farm in southwestern Romania

Dutch energy company Photon Energy announced last Thursday (1 February) that its Romanian subsidiary Photon Energy Engineering Romania has completed and grid-connected its tenth photovoltaic (PV) farm in Romania, with a generation capacity of 3.8 megawatt peak (MWp).

Located near Bocșa (southwestern Romania), the PV farm extends over 5.6 hectares of greenfield land and is equipped with a total of 6,160 photovoltaic modules.

“We are pleased to announce the successful commissioning of our tenth PV power plant in Romania, marking a significant milestone for our activities in this core market,” said Georg Hotar, CEO of Photon Energy Group. “The Bocșa power plant expands our IPP  portfolio to 39.1 MWp in Romania and increases our global capacity to 131.1 MWp.”

The total annual production of the new PV farm is expected to be around 5.9 gigawatt hours (GWh). High-efficiency bifacial photovoltaic modules mounted on single-axis trackers will deliver clean energy to the grid managed by E-Distribuție Banat.

The electricity generated will be sold on the energy market on a merchant basis, without any governmental support or a power purchase agreement with an energy off-taker, Photon Energy noted in a press release.

The company expects its Romanian power plants to generate around 490,000 euros in revenues in 2024 based on the current forward prices for electricity base load in Romania.
