Fortum on Monday said it has won a contract to install the largest rooftop solar power system in the Nordics.
Fortum on Monday said it has won a contract to install the largest rooftop solar power system in the Nordics.

 

Fortum and S Group have come to an agreement on the installation of the largest rooftop solar power system in the Nordics.

The majority state-owned energy company revealed this morning that it submitted the winning bid for implementing the electricity system on the rooftops of approximately 40 commercial buildings owned by S Group, a Finnish retail co-operative, across Finland.

With a total capacity of roughly 10 megawatts, the system would have accounted for nearly a third of the total solar power capacity of Finland in 2017 and will become the largest rooftop solar power system ever inaugurated in the Nordics.

S Group, meanwhile, stated that its objective is to use its renewable energy assets to generate 80 per cent of the energy it consumes in 2025.

“The electricity consumption of our sites peaks in the summer, when the sunlight lasts longer and is more intense. The best case scenario is that we can produce enough solar energy to satisfy 100 per cent of the electricity needs of one building in the summer,” told Mikko Halonen, the managing director of S Voima.

Fortum, he added, was selected as the supplier of the solar power system because its products and processes are reliable and audited.

The Finnish government has pledged to provide 20 per cent of the eight million euros required for the energy project, according to YLE.
