The first joint project from Eneco and Goldbeck Solar in the Netherlands has been completed recently and was built on the property of the regional water supplier Evides in Hoek. The solar farm in the south of the Netherlands, near the Belgian border, has a capacity of 2 MW.

Subsidized SDE+ contract

Approx. 1.900 megawatt hours will be produced and fed into the public grid, remunerated under a subsidized SDE+ contract. Goldbeck Solar is one of the few companies which have passed Eneco`s competitive selection process for construction partners.

“We are pleased about this first project and hope that the solar park lays the foundations for future cooperation. “After our Dutch premiere in Veendam and the present constructions in the Netherlands we appreciate to work together with Eneco as a strong partner, states Tobias Friedrich, International Key Account Manager at Goldbeck Solar, and responsible for sales in the Netherlands.

More projects in the double-digit MW range completed soon

Two projects in the double-digit MW range will be completed and grid connected in the Netherlands this year, Björn Lamprecht, COO of Goldbeck Solar, gives a positive outlook: “Chances are also good to expand the business in the Netherlands. The order books are actually filling up.”

“The Netherlands are one of our most growing markets in the moment. That`s why we have founded a Dutch subsidiary. Goldbeck Solar Netherlands B.V. is located in Arnhem and gives us the chance to react even faster with our EPC and O+M departments in the country,” states Tobias Friedrich.
