Wolf Theiss has advised a group of investors represented by PolSolar on the engineering, procurement, and construction of a 250-megawatt solar power plant in Mezocsat, Hungary.
According to Wolf Theiss, “the solar power plant boasts an installed rated capacity of 250 megawatts and was officially handed over on June 6, in Mezocsat, Hungary, marking a significant milestone in the country's transition towards clean energy. This new solar power plant has already undergone rigorous production tests and has been seamlessly integrated into the Hungarian electricity grid. Consequently, solar power generation and electricity export figures have already experienced a notable boost.”
According to the firm, “the Mezocsat solar power plant accounts for 8% of the total electricity generated by solar power plants in Hungary. The new plant spans a vast area of 440 hectares, featuring an astounding 466,000 solar panels, 80 medium-voltage transformer stations, and an intricate network of 1,000 kilometers of cables. The power plant can produce 372 gigawatt-hours of electricity annually; which amounts to enough clean energy to meet the energy needs of the nearby city of Debrecen, home to a population of 200,000, for half a year. The investment of over HUF 90 billion (approximately EUR 245 million) highlights the commitment of both private and public entities to the expansion of renewable energy sources. The expected lifespan of the investment is projected to be a minimum of 15 years, ensuring a long-lasting positive impact on Hungary's renewable energy sector.”
