MVM to build 20.6 MW solar plant in Paks
The state-owned Hungarian Electricity Works (MVM) laid the cornerstone of a 20.6 MW solar plant in Paks, southern Hungary, last Thursday. The production capacity will be equivalent to the energy consumption of 8,500 households.
MVM Hungarowind is in charge of construction. Its executive manager, József Gaál, said the MVM group will cover 65% of the projectʼs HUF 9 billion costs from its own funds and the rest from EU grants, national news agency MTI reported.
The construction project will be completed on a surface of 50 hectares in six months. The work will be labor-intensive, but once finished the solar plant will require only a few workers as it will be fully automated, Gaál noted.
As reported last fall, the MVM group will build a total of 110 solar plants this year with a nominal total capacity of 87.6 MW and a built-in total capacity of 104.2 MW.
