PFALZSOLAR announces the realization of its first photovoltaic project in Austria. On behalf of PÜSPÖK Erneuerbare Energie GmbH, the company is implementing a solar park with 14.4 megawatts for the Nickelsdorf project as EPC service provider.
“We are proud to be operating in Austria and delighted to be able to realize the Neubruch Nickelsdorf project. The project is a wonderful example of how internationalization in the PV industry is progressing and how markets are growing closer together. With Austria, we are now active in nine different countries. Further markets will certainly follow,” says Lars Josten, Managing Director of PFALZSOLAR.
“By connecting this turbine to one of our existing wind farms, in combination as a hybrid farm, the existing grid infrastructure can be used as efficiently as possible. Grazing the area between the modules with sheep also creates a further combination of agriculture and energy production”, says Daniel Derflinger, Project Manager at PÜSPÖK Erneuerbare Energie GmbH. The family-owned company with over 20 years of experience in the wind power and solar energy sector is already involved in other projects in the northern part of Burgenland.
PFALZSOLAR demonstrates international competence once again with the Neubruch Nickelsdorf project, which is part of an extensive portfolio of installations located in Germany, the Netherlands, England, Scotland, Spain, the United States, and, more recently, Greece.
Innovative Solar Park Nickelsdorf
The innovative Nickelsdorf solar park will be built directly on the border with Slovakia and Hungary. The Burgenland region is a pioneer in renewable energy and has launched a flagship project with the largest photovoltaic project in Austria to date. PFALZSOLAR’s solar park, with a planned capacity of 14.4 megawatts, will make an important contribution to this initiative. The ground-mounted photovoltaic plant of the Neubruch Nickelsdorf project becomes part of a hybrid power plant by combining it with an existing wind farm. Furthermore, a battery storage system will be installed to ensure consistent electricity production. This project lays the foundation for Burgenland to achieve carbon neutrality and energy independence by 2030. The facility is expected to begin operation in October 2023 and generate approximately 18,500 megawatt-hours of solar energy annually.
