• Chint of China has commissioned a 15 MW solar power plant in Netherlands’ Andijk region in the municipality of Medemblik
  • It used its own solar panels to deploy at the park, making it the company’s second commissioned project in the country in 2018
  • The company has also secured official approval for a 103 MW solar power project in the Dutch Midden-Groningen municipality, planned to be commissioned by the end of 2019

China’s Chint Group has officially announced commissioning of its 15 MW solar power project in the Netherlands using its own panels. It is located in Andijk in the municipality of Medemblik, Netherlands.

In Holland, Chint works as Chint Solar Nederland to develop solar parks here with its group entity Astronergy, which supplies solar panels. Astronergy owns 2.5 GW of crystalline module production capacity in factories located in China, Thailand, Vietnam and Germany.

The Dutch project will supply enough clean power for 4,622 households and is located on a plot of land that was originally allocated as an industrial estate. It is the company’s second solar power project in the country in 2018. In March 2018, it commissioned another 15.5 MW park in the municipality of Veendam. Chint Solar/Astronergy acquired the park from a local developer at the end of 2016.

In addition, the company has received official approval for the 103 MW Midden-Groningen solar park in the Netherlands, from local authorities. It plans to start construction in early 2019 and finalise it by end of that year. Chint Solar says it will be one of the largest solar parks in the country.

In the beginning of November 2018, Germany’s IB Vogt GmbH commissioned the 54.5 MW Scaldia Solar Park in Netherlands and called it the country’s largest (see 54.5 MW PV Project Comes Online In Netherlands).
