- Goldbeck Solar has announced the commercial operations of 204 MW DC/145 MW AC solar power capacity in Poland
- Located in Pomerania region, the project forms phase I of 290 MW DC solar power plant of Goldbeck Solar and Respect Energy
- The company plans to start construction of remaining 86 MW DC/60 MW AC solar power capacity in 2023
German solar EPC company Goldbeck Solar has commissioned 204 MW DC/145 MW AC solar power capacity out of 290 MW DC/205 MW AC Zwartowo PV project in Poland, currently the ‘largest’ announced solar power plant in the country as well as in Central and Eastern Europe.
Energized under phase I, the 204 MW DC project was connected to the grid in September 2022. The company realized the system along with its partner Respect Energy (see 203 MW Solar Power Project Coming Up In Poland).
It is located near Zwartowo village in Gmina Choczewo district of Pomerania region of Poland. Remaining 86 MW DC/60 MW AC capacity is scheduled to enter construction in early 2023 and later it may also be expanded to more than 350 MW DC capacity.
Goldbeck has deployed Suntech’s glass-glass modules with 535W and 540W output and SMA Solar’s inverters. For this project, Goldbeck collaborated with Fraunhofer Institute ITWM to develop a planning software called SolarPlanner.
It is also financed by PLN 212 million from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) with Polish banks PKO BP and Bank Pekao also supporting the facility (see EBRD Backing For Poland’s Largest Solar PV Plant).
“Due to Zwartowo, around 90,470 households can be supplied with green electricity and CO2 emissions can be reduced by around five million tons during the project period,” said Goldbeck Solar’s Managing Director Joachim Goldbeck.
