Scheuten Solar PV Plants in Italy and Belgium

11 June 2009 by

Scheuten Solar and GreenFever are building a PV plant of 6.5 hectares in Veurne, Belgium. On June 3rd the first module was installed by Jan Verfaillie, mayor of Veurne.

The project includes the installation of 13,000 solar modules which are installed in two phases. The plant will produce 100% green electricity for over 700 families, for more than 20 years.

The construction time of the total installation of the plant is noteworthy; groundwork began in May and the goal is to have the first ten thousand modules installed before the summer holidays. After that there will be another three thousand panels added. At the moment this system is connected to the power grid it will be the biggest operational PV Power Plant in the Benelux.

The PV plant has a peak power of 2.7 megawatts and produces an estimated 2.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year, providing green energy for 700 families. That way the annual emissions of 1,500 tons of CO2 will be avoided.
