Renewable energy developers Infinergy and Tomorrow Energy have announced they are working together to develop solar PV projects in The Netherlands. Initially Infinergy will take over the development of six projects with a combined installed capacity of around 70 megawatts.
The solar projects are situated across The Netherlands and they are in various stages of development. Planning applications have been submitted for three of those; Vroenhout in Roosendaal, De Mun in Oss and Solar Park Zevenaar in Zevenaar, totalling up to 24MW in solar energy capacity.
Infinergy CFO Tjiwolt Wierda said: “Teaming up with Tomorrow Energy fits our business strategy seamlessly. We focus on sustained growth, both in technology and in the countries where we are active. Alongside onshore wind we are looking to build up a portfolio of solar projects in The Netherlands. Partnering with Tomorrow Energy who are established solar developers in the Dutch market allows us to do so, to the benefit of both parties involved.”
Tomorrow Energy’s Hakkan Yildirim added: “Infinergy’s investment in our projects is most welcome. Finance required for renewable energy development is significant and we were looking to reduce our risk exposure. In Infinergy we have found partners who not only complement our capabilities and ambitions, but who also share our core objective of increasing green energy generation in The Netherlands.”
At present further opportunities to work together are being considered.
