ECOwind and EVN are building a Floating-PV plant in Grafenwörth – the largest of its kind in Central Europe. It is being built on a water surface of approximately 14 hectares, has an output of 24.5 MWp and will be able to supply around 7,500 households with green electricity in the future.
“We are very pleased to implement this project together with our partner EVN. With the still new solar application Floating-PV, fallow water areas can be put to new, practical use. Considering the limited space that is available, such systems are a very valuable addition to the classic solar installation on the roof or in open spaces,” says ECOwind Managing Director Johann Janker.
Governor Johanna Mikl-Leitner came to see the PV plant on site and was delighted: “We want to take big steps forward in climate protection. The plant helps us to get closer to our goals in the fight against climate change.
The Floating-PV plant will go into operation in spring 2023.
