Photon Energy commissions additional 6 PV power plants in Püspökladány
Photon Energy Solutions HU Kft., the Photon Energy N.V.ʼs Hungarian subsidiary dedicated to engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, has completed and grid-connected six PV power plants, with a combined capacity of 8.5 MWp in the town of Püspökladány (about 162 km east of Budapest).
In total, there will be 10 power plants constructed and commissioned by the group in the town.
On October 12, the company grid-connected two power plants in the municipality, with a combined capacity of 2.8 MWp. Another two, which will also have a combined capacity of 2.8 MWp, are in the final stages of construction and are set to be grid-connected in November 2020.
The six new power plants extend over 11.9 hectares and are connected to the grid of E.ON Tiszántúli Áramhálózati Zrt.
Together they are expected to generate around 12.1 GWh of electricity per year. They expand the groupʼs current installed base in Hungary to 46.3 MWp, and its global proprietary portfolio of power plants to 71.9 MWp.
"We are very excited to commission another six power plants in Püspökladány and we are proud that even in these unprecedented times, under the shadow of the pandemic, our dedicated team safely managed to stay right on schedule, taking Photon Energy one step closer to the goal of 75 MWp of PV power plants in Hungary within our proprietary portfolio by the end of 2021," said Georg Hotar, CEO of Photon Energy.
The group will operate the six new power plants through four wholly-owned project companies that possess six METÁR licenses. These licenses entitle each power plant to a de facto feed-in tariff of HUF 33,360 per MWh. Three of the six power plants are entitled to a maximum approved and supported production of approximately 34,800 MWh per license over a period of 17 years and 11 months, and the remaining three to a maximum approved and supported production of approximately 29,950 MWh over a period of 15 years and five months for each license.
The combined annual revenues of the six power plants are expected to be EUR 1.1 million.
The valuation model for the groupʼs proprietary portfolio, in accordance with IAS 16, implies that other comprehensive income of approximately EUR 2.7 million will be recorded in the groupʼs Q4 2020 Consolidated Income Statement in relation to the commissioning of the six power plants.
