Photon Energy commissions 8 new PV Power Plants in Hungary

Photon Energy told SolarDaily.com that its subsidiary Photon Energy Solutions HU Kft. has completed and grid-connected eight photovoltaic power plants with a total installed capacity of 5.4 MWp in the municipality of Tata, Hungary. This latest addition expands the Group’s installed base in Hungary to 31.5 MWp and its total proprietary portfolio of PV power plants to 57.1 MWp.

The eight power plants are connected to the grid of E.ON Eszak-dunantuli Aramhalozati Zrt. and are expected to generate around 7.35 GWh of electricity per year. Six out of the eight use tracking technology allowing solar modules to follow the course of the sun (single-axis tracking system); two harvest solar energy at a fixed angle (fixed-mount system).

For Photon Energy these are the first PV power plants built using single-axis tracking systems, which are expected to achieve a 15-20% higher specific performance.

“We are excited to connect another 5.4 MWp of PV power plants to the grid, currently contributing 31.5 MWp of PV capacity to the Hungarian energy mix. With a further 17.7 MWp of PV power plants at the advanced stage of construction (3.5 MWp) and under development (14.2 MWp), we remain well on track to deliver our year-end 2021 goal of 75 MWp of Hungarian PV power plants in our proprietary portfolio,” said Georg Hotar, CEO of Photon Energy N.V.

The Group will own and operate the power plants through five wholly-owned project companies that own eight KAT licenses. The licenses entitle each power plant to a feed-in tariff of 33,360 HUF per MWh (approx. EUR 99 per MWh) over a period of 25 years with a maximum approved and supported production of 25,650 MWh per license (tracking system) and 16,475 MWh (fixed-mount system). Total annual revenues of all eight power plants are expected to amount to EUR 728,000.

Following the revaluation of the Group’s proprietary portfolio according to IAS 16, approximately EUR 2.2 million will be recorded as the Group’s Other Comprehensive Income in the Q1 2020 Consolidated Income Statement.
