Saarbrücken, 17. December 2020 – Greencells GmbH, a global EPC and O&M service provider for utility-scale solar power plants, has signed another EPC contract in the Netherlands with long-time partner and investor Kronos Solar Projects GmbH. The new 14 MWp photovoltaic project in Voorst, which is expected to start in Q2 2021, brings the EPC portfolio contracted by Kronos Solar in the Netherlands to 75 MWp for 2021, consisting of four projects.
With this new agreement, Greencells GmbH continues its proven EPC partnership with Kronos Solar in the Netherlands. Since 2019, 55 MWp have already been successfully implemented together. The latest addition is the 16 MWp power plant in Zwolle, which was connected to the grid beginning of December this year.
“The cooperation with Greencells is not only very reliable, in Greencells we also found a partner who helps us to innovatively and consistently drive the cost degression of the power plants in order to remain competitive in the future,” says Dr Alexander Arcache, Managing Director of Kronos.
“The partnership and forward-looking cooperation with Kronos give us the opportunity to closely coordinate new ideas and technologies already in the development phase. This enables us to consistently pursue our optimisation approach,” says Florian Johänntgen, Vice President EPC Sales at Greencells.
Greencells GmbH has been successfully active in the Netherlands since 2018. To date, the company has already realised around 332 MWp in the country, either independently or in cooperation with partners.
