The contract covers the entire process from planning to commissioning. After a three-month planning phase and a realisation phase of only 5 months, their trial operations started in February 2019 for two months.  After the successful trial period, the energy feeds into the public grid.

The photovoltaic power plant, in which about 16 million euros have been invested and which has been installed on behalf of the Hungarian energy provider Mátrai Erőmű Zrt, consists of 64,000 polycrystalline solar modules with a nominal output of 355 watts each. The high power and capacity of the environmentally friendly plant could, for example, supply some 6,500 households with electricity.

The development of this solar plant is an important step towards renewable energy production in Hungary. Hungary's energy supply currently relies on traditional power generation, it s a first step towards the energy transition.
