BELECTRIC strengthens its presence on the Danish market with a 135 MWp project

  • BELECTRIC secures a major contract to consolidate its presence on the Danish market

  • Construction of a 135-Megawatt Peak (MWp) solar power plant for NRGi Renewables

Kolitzheim (Germany) – BELECTRIC, Member of Elevion Group, secures a contract for a large-scale solar farm near Aarhus in Denmark. By constructing a 135-megawatt solar power plant for NRGi Renewables, the Germany-based company reinforces its presence on the Danish solar power market.

Building on its recent market entry, BELECTRIC has now secured a contract for the company’s biggest photovoltaic project in Denmark to date. On an area equivalent to 175 football fields, BELECTRIC is constructing a 135-MWp solar power plant for its new partner NRGi Renewables, a Danish renewable energy project developer. The solar plant will be located southeast of the town of Kolind near Aarhus (Denmark) and will become a cornerstone in BELECTRIC’s presence on the Danish market. Starting April 2025, more than 220.000 modules on site are expected to cover the annual electricity needs of over 30,000 households with solar energy.

Jakob Bundgaard, CEO at NRGi Renewables, comments: “We’re thrilled to team up with BELECTRIC for our first solar power project. With BELECTRIC’s extensive experience in solar power plant development and construction, along with NRGi Renewables’ local expertise and community engagement, we’ve laid a solid foundation for this ambitious project.”

Special attention in the design of the solar farm was paid to preserving the embankments and water protection areas present on the site. Furthermore, the concerns of residents also played a central role in the solar farm’s design. Additional noise studies have been carried out to ensure minimal affection to neighbouring population due to the presence of inverters on site. As BELECTRIC is committed to reducing the impact of solar farm construction on all relevant stakeholders, the results of this study have been incorporated into the engineering of the plant.

“We are excited to be partnering with NRGi Renewables on an exciting project of this scale. Being chosen for the construction of the Kolind solar farm is a testament to our experience with mega-projects. We might be a medium-sized company, but we can certainly go big!”, explains Dr Thorsten Blanke, Managing Director of BELECTRIC.
