BELECTRIC is constructing a solar power system for Vattenfall’s first full hybrid power plant.
The Haringvliet Zuid energy park will consist of a wind farm (22 MW), a battery storage system (12 MW) and a large-scale photovoltaic system constructed and commissioned by German solar power specialist BELECTRIC. The solar power system alone will cover an area of around 30 hectares and boast an installed capacity of 38 MW. The hybrid power plant designed to generate and store renewable energy will be built on the island Goeree-Overflakke of the province of South Holland, around 30 km southwest of Rotterdam. Construction has already begun on the large-scale photovoltaic system. BELECTRIC also plans to assume the operation and maintenance (O&M) of the solar power system for an initial period of two years.
BELECTRIC has constructed over 400 large-scale solar power plants around the world, capable of generating a total of 3000 MW. The company has also implemented battery storage systems and hybrid systems that combine multiple technological components to create fully autonomous plants. For example, the company built a system in Puerto Rico combining a solar power plant with an output of over 15 MW and a large battery storage system. In addition, BELECTRIC is currently integrating a storage system into Jordan’s South Amman solar power project. The company completed the photovoltaic system which has over 46 MW of installed capacity earlier in 2020. The company has also delivered hybrid systems to customers in Germany, Somalia, Tanzania, Eritrea, the MENA region and the Maldives.
