EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG has taken a final investment decision for the construction of the 180-MW Weesow-Willmersdorf solar park in Brandenburg, Germany.
Spread across 164 hectares, the project is touted as the country's largest solar facility. It is expected to become operational by the end of 2020 and is set to be the first major solar project in Germany to operate without feed-in tariff remuneration under the country's Renewable Energies Act.
Groundwork to install the transmission line, linking the solar farm to the grid, will commence in early 2020, according to an Oct. 16 news release.
EnBW acquired the solar project in the pre-development stage from Procon Solar GmbH in 2018.
The utility owns 100 MW of operational solar generation, with a further 25 MW under construction.
