Chinese company Hanergy Thin Film Power Group has launched the 11.4MW thin-film Roodehaan solar park in Groningen, Netherlands.
Its subsidiary Hanergy Thin Film Power Europe developed the project in cooperation with development partner Solar Energy Works.
The ground-mounted solar park Roodehaan covers 22ha and comprises 81,000 solar modules. It is capable of producing enough electricity for 3,500 households annually in the Netherlands.
Hanergy Europe is the exclusive supplier of the 81,000 thin-film modules that have been manufactured by Solibro.
Hanergy Thin Film Power Europe CEO Ming Li said: “The Roodehaan solar park is a landmark project that resembles the success of Hanergy’s solar development strategy in the Netherlands.
“Hanergy takes great pride in having co-developed and supplied its Solibro modules to this project in close cooperation with its Dutch project partners.”
The company’s thin-film solar technology and products have been used in various projects such as AFAS stadium, the home of Dutch football club AZ Alkmaar.
Its subsidiary MiaSolé produced 1,725 thin-film modules that were installed on the roof of the stadium.
Chinese Embassy economic and trade councillor Zhang Guosheng said: “Roddehaan solar project illustrates the key role that China and Chinese companies play in the renewable energy transition in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe.”
